Whithorn Braveheart boxers Daniel Purves and Connal McDonald have been selected to box for Scotland in Dublin against Ireland on May 12,

The Braveheart champions have been training hard since winning gold and silver in the Scottish Championships in March and coach Tom Jolly said: “Both boxers will give 100 per cent effort for their country. This is a great opportunity for the boxers in their preparation for the British Championships in June.”

Please note: the Whithorn Braveheart ABC boxing show in the McMillan Hall, Newton Stewart, this Sunday is a ticket-only event and is a complete sell-out. So if you don’t have a ticket you won’t get in!
