Whithorn Braveheart boxer Tyler Jolly attend a boxing show in East Kilbride last Saturday night to box an exhibition bout against the current GB champion.

Bravehearts’ coach Wullie Martin told The Galloway Gazette: “A short notice bout became available last Friday and, as always, the Bravehearts are happy to travel anywhere to get our boxers in the ring,

“Tyler boxed a very skilled boxer from Glasgow who was 7kg heavier, and what a display the two champions put on for the crowd, with Tyler, in the closing seconds of the final round, catching his opponent with a body shot that dropped him to his knees,”

The Bravehearts have two boxers competing this Friday night in the ‘Wee Rangers’ Club near Ibrox.
