HADDINGTON boxing star Iain Trotter maintained his perfect record with a fifth straight professional victory at the weekend. 

Trotter produced an assured performance to force the referee to intervene in the third round of his bout in Glasgow on Friday evening. 

And the former Knox Academy pupil was delighted with his fifth win.

He posted on social media: "Another victory, we move to 5-0 with a third round stoppage victory!!

"Thank you to everyone for the messages of support and everyone who came out and bought tickets [you] have once again been incredible, I cannot thank [you] enough.

"Without [you] all this would not be possible. Thanks to MTK Scotland for having me on there show."
And Trotter's attention now turns to Saturday evening as he fights on the undercard of county star Josh Taylor's title fight at the Royal Highland Centre at Ingliston.
