RESULTS ON THE GLASGOW UNDERCARD

Former GB star Anthony Ogogo (9-0, 5 KOs) returned to action in Glasgow after nearly a year out with injury to score a 3rd round stoppage of Gary Cooper. – Ogogo dominated Cooper before a flurry of shots forced his corner to compassionately throw in the towel to save their man from taking any further punishment from the fired up former Olympic bronze medal winner. – The Londoner had seen the past two years of his career hampered by Achilles and shoulder injuries but he looked sharp in this fight, wobbling Cooper in the closing moments of the 2nd round before finishing the job in the 3rd flurry of punches in the third.

British lightweight champion Scotty Cardle outpointed Ivan Njegac.

Former two-time British-middleweight title challenger John Ryder outpointed Robert Talarek.

Glasgow’s Sam Ball stopped George Hennon in the 3rd round.
