Knightswood bantamweight boxer Kash Farooq cruised to his seventh professional win last Thursday in Glasgow, after forcing a first round stoppage against Georgi Andonov.

The 21-year-old, originally from Pakistan, dominated the opening round at St Andrew’s Boxing Club in Glasgow, and caught his Bulgarian opponent with a body shot which caused Andonov visible discomfort.

After that Farooq started his onslaught, and left the referee with no choice but to stop the fight.

It’s his first knockout win since turning pro at the end of 2015.

He said: “I was delighted, I didn’t want to be in the ring long, I wanted to get out of there as quick as I could that’s what you want. That’s one of my most convincing wins so far. I did him in the first round, but that’s what you’re meant to do with these types of fights, you’re meant to put them away.”

Kash’s next opponent is likely to be Scott Allan in a British Bantamweight title eliminator on November 23.

The final details are still to be confirmed, but the pair are hoping to get their fight under way this time around.

The fight was originally scheduled for September 9, but it was called off after Ryan Brawley pulled out of his fight with Willie Limond in the main event that evening.

Farooq added: “I’m looking forward to it. That was the fight I was really excited about, after it got called off my mood just went down. I wasn’t really up for fighting again, but I picked myself up and got my head screwed on and got through the fight.

“It was a 12 week training camp. I was training all over summer, at the gym, out on the roads just running.

“I’m going to be back at the gym this week. I can’t afford to be off for too long. I don’t want to put too much weight on,your body ends up going stale.”
