Gary Murray has had 13 professional fights

Scottish boxer Gary Murray "remains stable" in hospital after his bout with Belfast's Patrick Gallagher on Friday.

The fight between Coatbridge welterweight Murray, 30, and Gallagher, 28, at Edinburgh's Meadowbank Sports Centre was stopped in the 10th round.

Promoters MTK Scotland said doctors "discovered an injury which required immediate attention".

On Monday they tweeted: "We are pleased to let everyone know that he remains stable and in good hands in hospital."

The post continued: "All signs are very positive and the doctors caring for Gary are happy with his progress."

Murray made his professional debut in June 2014 and had won all 12 of his fights before Friday's Celtic welterweight title defeat.

His bout was on the undercard of fellow Scot Gary Cornish's loss to Norwich's Sam Sexton, who took the British heavyweight title.
