SCOTT FITZGERALD is looking forward to 2021 where his talent can land him big fights and even bigger titles. There is no doubt he can be a serious world title, hopefully if he finds top form when he’s back in action.
Personal issues haven’t help his cause in 2020, but two of Scott’s fights in 2019 showed that he is for real.
His WBA International title showdown against former GB amateur team-mate turned rival, Anthony Fowler was one of the grudge matches of the year. Fans couldn’t split them before the March 2019 clash, but despite narrow scorecards there was little doubt that Fitzgerald deserved to have his hand raised after ten pulsating rounds.
Six months later, Fitzgerald was pitched against British champion Ted Cheeseman. Again, he didn’t disappoint winning a tough 12 rounder on points to claim his second professional title.
He is yet to defend that belt, but the British Boxing Board of Control have ordered Scott to face mandatory challenger JJ Metcalf in his next title defence.
When Fitzgerald signed with VIP Promotions in 2016, Steve Wood agreed a promotional deal with Eddie Hearn, and Matchroom have done a solid job with him.
Back in 2014, he won the gold medal in the 69kg division when the Commonwealth Games were hosted in Glasgow.
