Whithorn Bravehearts boxer Tyler jolly ended the year with a great win in Glasgow on Friday night in a Christmas cracker of a contest.

Auchengeich abc held their annual festive boxing show in Moodiesburn. They brought over an all Irish squad to compete against a Scottish select in which Tyler stepped in at very short notice to take the bout against the Irish district champion.

Coach Wullie Martin said: “It was late on Thursday night that we got the offer of the bout and it shows the dedication and commitment of all our boxers to be ready a moment’s notice to step in to the ring.

“Tyler boxed brilliantly against an experienced southpaw and secured the win to end 2013 on a high note for Team Bravehearts.

“I would like to take the time to thank all our sponsors and supporters who have helped make 2013 the most successful year to date, with boxers winning Scottish, British and European medals.

“The club has a strong developing youth squad and the future is looking bright. Bravehearts restart on Monday, January 6.”
