SCOTT FITZGERALD was an unlikely champion at the Commonwealth Games. He had won the domestic ABA championships in 2013 but hadn’t been able to repeat the feat this year at welterweight. But the Larches & Savick boxer performed well in international competition and was selected for Glasgow 2014. There everything clicked into place. He may have picked up a bad cut over his eye and damaged his hand but he fought through it, showcasing a powerful left hook. He won a tremendous war with New Zealand’s Bowyn Morgan and blasted Mandeep Jangra off his feet at the start of their final, outpointing him to win the Commonwealth Games gold medal in excellent style.
