Lytham boxer Scott Cardle turned in an outstanding performance with a landslide points win over Gary Fox in Glasgow on Saturday night.

He was always in control of this eight-round contest, dominating his rival, the Northern Area lightweight title holder.

Cardle, holder of the Central Area title, was given the verdict 79-73 by referee Kenny Pringle.

That margin was a clear reflection of Cardle’s superiority and by the closing stages Fox looked discouraged and justifiably so given how hard he had been made to struggle by the Lytham fighter, who maintained his 100 per cent professional record.

Cardle hurt his right hand in the fourth, forcing to use his left jab more, which he did to telling effect.
