SCOTT James was delighted to return to winning ways after beating Alan Fielding on a unanimous decision at the Deco Theatre in Northampton.

The 23-year-old, who trains at Bicester BC, had the home favourite in trouble from the start at the Lockdown Fright Night event.

Light-middleweight James, who works as a manager at Bicester Village, dominated the opening round, landing several clean punches.

He kept up the pressure in the second and a right hook put Fielding on the canvas.

The Northampton fighter got to his feet to beat the referee’s count, before James skilfully worked his jab in the final round to earn the win.

He said: “It feels great to pick up another victory.

“My last contest ended in a very contentious draw, so it’s nice to return to winning ways.”

Bicester teenager James Fazul was also in action, but his contest against Northampton’s Chris Roberts ended in a draw.

The 14-year-old, who attends Cooper School, was on the front foot early on and had Roberts in trouble on the ropes in the second round.

Fazul continued to try and set the pace in the third, while both fighters looked to have the final say, but the referee declared the fight as a draw.
