Born in Scotland, Scott had a distinguished career back in his homeland during 1990s and early 2000s, winning the BBBofC Scottish Area Welterweight title, the World Boxing Board (WBB) welterweight World title, The World Boxing Union (WBU) super middleweight Inter-Continental title, and the Commonwealth Welterweight title.
Scott unsuccessfully also challenged for the World Athletic Association (WAA) welterweight title, BBBofC British welterweight title, World Boxing Federation (WBF) light middleweight, the World Boxing Organisation ((WBO) Inter-Continental light middleweight title and the World Boxing Union (WBU) light middleweight World title.
After relocating to Malta, Scott continued to campaign, albeit on the local unlicensed circuit, that was until the opportunity arose to challenge Baker Barakat, for the lightly regarded German WBUv Super Middleweight World title, at the Pembroke Arena in Malta on the 25th August 2012.
Scott appeared to control the bout throughout, so everyone was surprised when the final scores were read out as a Split Decision – renowned Judge Jan Teleci (Czech Republic) and Benny Decroos (Belgium) scoring the bout 116-112 in favour of Scott whilst Judge Mustafa Erenay (Germany) scored in favour of Baker 115-113.
Scott wasn’t fussed about the scores, he was once again a World Champion.
Scott fought once more before successfully defending his title, against Georgia’s George Kandalaki, at the MFCC Ta Qali in Malta on the 25th April 2014.
This time there were no doubts, as once again Scott dominated the proceedings from start to finish to retain his crown.
The Judges scorecards were: Franz Loerinc (Germany) and Irene Kostenko (Russia) scored the bout 120-107 and Benny Decroos (Belgium) 119-108
