    Lee McGregor won a controversial split decision over Kash Farooq in a brilliant bantamweight battle on Saturday at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland.

    McGregor added Farooq's British title to his Commonwealth crown thanks to a strong finish in a satisfying win over his Scottish rival.

    While both Scottish boxers can be proud of their performances and their contributions to a ferociously fought contest, which enhances both their reputations, Farooq's corner was angry with the decision. The Pakistan-born boxer had fought with more energy and landed the cleaner punches for the majority of the bout.

    McGregor (8-0, 6 KOs) finished strong, though, and won despite having a point docked in the 10th round for holding. He was awarded the victory with scores of 114-113, 113-114 and 115-112.
