Doherty was 20-0 going into the fight, & was a heavy favourite to win, I think Frank ****** bas banking on Kevin being past his best, as hed been stopped recently by Gary Reid & Nigel Wright. But Kev did beat Wright the first time they fought, showing that on his day he can be a hard fight for anyone in Britain.
In fact, it was a good night all round for the scots last night, with concrete fisted Kenny Anderson winning by KO yet again(three out of three by KO now) & of course Alex Athur finally fufilling his potential by beating a top opponent in Gogoladze.

Kevin is a good lad, I'm pleased as feck for him. You right though, ****** took him down there thinking he was an easy touch, but what they didnt know was that he is a lot stronger since moving up the weight, l/welter was just too light for him. I knew this could be a sticking point for Doherty. Oh, how good is that!
