Jay McFarlane crowned King of Scotland
Glasgow's "The Ghost" Jay McFarlane (15-8, 6KO) became a two-weight Scottish champion on Friday, August 8, after forcing the referee to stop the contest in the eighth round.
Mohammed Saleem (5-1, 1KO), 34 from Dumfries, was unbeaten going into the Scottish Area heavyweight contest and gave his everything in a brilliant battle at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow.
Promoter Sam Kynoch commented, "What a battle between the two heavyweights, and Kaseem Saleem gave it his all."
25-year-old McFarlane first won the Scottish cruiserweight title in June 2018 with a points victory over Fiji-born Edinburgh boxer Ratu Latianara.
Now the Glaswegian has claimed his second Scottish belt and collected his 15th win from 23 bouts, he will be looking to push on towards bigger titles and fights.
