No coming up short for an in-form Scott

Trainer Graham Everett has paid credit to up-and-coming boxer Scott Moises for rising to his latest challenge – with just three days' notice.

Moises stepped up from super-bantamweight to light-welterweight to fill a void on the Miranda Carter-promoted Stormin' Sunday card at the York Hall in Bethnal Green.

And the Norwich boxer – who came up through the ranks at Aylsham Boxing Club – took his record to an even 3-3 with a comprehensive points victory over four rounds against Luton's Dwayne Grimes.

Everett admitted it was something of a gamble for the 23-year-old Moises.

'But it turned out to be one which was well worth taking as Scott dominated the fight from the first round to the last, although it was always a competitive contest,' said Everett. 'Scott had to box very well behind his jab against the power punching Grimes, who always looked to close Scott down.

'These situations are a perfect example of a boxer keeping himself in good condition and ready to box at all times, especially early in his career. I can only give Scott full credit for being ready to take a challenge on at any given opportunity – he is a tremendous lad to work with and a credit to himself.'

Moises, who is expected to return to the ring in December, landed a solid left-right combination in the second, followed by several hard body shots which seemed to slow Grimes.
