YORK featherweight boxer Cam Shaw kept his undefeated professional record intact after battling to a points decision win in Doncaster.

Having comprehensively defeated Sweden's Edward Bjorklund on his debut in the paid ranks in Rotherham, Shaw was successful in taking his CV to two wins from as many fights.

This time Bradford's Jake Pollard was the man facing Shaw, (age), though the result remained the same, Shaw triumphing on the referee's scorecard, this time by a 39-37 margin.

The evening was rather frustrating one for Shaw with the constant holding style of Pollard and his tendency to move forwards with his head making life difficult for the York boxer.

Shaw thinks that it's all good experience for his development as a fighter.

"He loved to grab and bull his head down," said Shaw. "He was a hard guy but I took his shots on the chin and I got through it.

"The guys that I've boxed so far have been negative fighters, but at this stage in my career, we've got to come up against these type of opponents.

"It is good to come up against opponents of different styles and Jake came to fight tonight, which is all good experience.

"He was a very different opponent to the one I faced on my debut and I've learned different things from that fight compared to this one.

"It was a different venue tonight too, with it's own separate atmosphere so that was good to soak up too.

"I loved being in there. It was good to get out in the ring again.

"He was bulling his way in with his head but that's just one of those things that you've got to deal with as a boxer.

"He came out there in the last round and was trying to fire bombs, but I thought that I held up well in that exchange.

"I won the fight and that's the main thing."

Shaw had a steady first round, picking off Pollard from range with the occassional shot jab and body shot but often found himself pushed to the ropes in the clinch by the physically-imposing Pollard whenever the pair came into close proximity.

That pattern remained for much of the second and third rounds. The aggressor Shaw being on the front foot and landing with his left hand but never able to sustain the pressure thanks to Pollard's holding.

That was until the fourth and last stanza when Shaw momentarily appeared stunned after a swinging left from Pollard as the pair subsequently traded off in centre ring.

Shaw remained composed though, to his credit, and boxed well until the final bell sounded.

The result means that Shaw remain on course for his next fight at the Hull Bonus Arena on Saturday, October 26.

It's Shaw first fight in the city having previously boxed in Rotherham and Doncaster and his four-round contest takes place on the undercard to the English super flyweight title fight between champion Craig Derbyshire and challenger Marcel Braithwaite.

"It's about three weeks now until my next fight. It's a Saturday night and tickets are only £35.

"It's going to be an absolutely electrifying show, it's going to be mint.

"For my third fight, I'd like to say that I'd be in against a bit of stronger opponent. I've just had a good competitive fight and I'm fight ready now to go again."
