Purvis eyes return bout

Hawick’s Jack Purvis lost a unanimous decision to Wishaw’s Kamil Vescick on Saturday night.

In a below par performance, the 18-year-old welterweight failed to come to terms with Vescick’s spoiling tactics and was never able to settle behind his left jab.

Purvis beat Vescick by way of a unanimous verdict in Hawick in September and speaking this week he said: “That’s one each so hopefully we’ll be able to do it again soon.”
