Lewis Paulin’s third pro bout set for December 5 in Edinburgh

Edinburgh’s Super Featherweight prospect Lewis Paulin is set for his third professional contest on the MGM Promotions Scotland card on December 5th at Edinburgh’s Meadowbank Arena.

Paulin had an interested start in boxing, having his first contest at the age of 18 not in his native Edinburgh, but in Portsmouth! After a different start in boxing the 25 year old southpaw managed to climb all the way to Scottish finals, and lost his first amateur contest in a very disputed decision in the Scottish Lightweight final after flooring Charlie Flynn, those in attendance suggested Flynn received a long count in a fight Flynn won by a point.

After an excellent amateur career including boxing internationally for Scotland, Paulin has looked impressive in his first two professional contests, getting rounds under his belt against the tough Youssef Al Hamidi and Qasim Hussain.

Paulin spoke on making his third appearance on the Edinburgh Fight Night Card, “I am excited to get back in the ring on December fifth. Thank you to Sam and MGM for having me on the show. I am excited to show fight fans my skills”. “I was at the last MGM show in Edinburgh and it was an excellent show. I am really excited for the fifth of December”.

Paulin who had a decorated amateur career out of Meadowbank ABC will feel right at home on 5th December as he joins debutante Thomas Dickson, Stephen Simmons, Lewis Benson, Stephen Tiffney, Tommy Philbin, John Thain, Marc Kerr, Michael Roberts Jnr, Ross Henderson and Brian Forsyth in a bill that is topped by David Brophy vs Charles Adamu in an eliminator for the Commonwealth Super Middleweight title.
