The under-card at the Royal Highland Centre, in Edinburgh, saw two fascinating fights involving up-and-coming boxers.

Jason Eaton, making a defence of his IBO Inter-Continental title, was matched against the Czech fighter Kosef Zahradnik, with both fighters entering the bout with unbeaten records, one fighter knew they were to suffer the first defeat of their career.

26-year-old Eaton, although handicapped by cut above his left-eye, after a clash of heads, produced a devastating display to retain his title by a unanimous decision to stretch his record to 11 wins from 11 fights.

Earlier on in the evening 20-year-old Lee McGregor made his professional debut against the Bulgarian fighter Stefan Sashov.

McGregor got his career off to a great start stopping the Bulgarian inside the first round.

Following the fight, his manager, Barry McGuigan gushed profusely about the talent McGregor has and inferred that he had every confidence he was already capable of beating the British champion.

Eaton and McGregor, to names to take notice of.
