David’s up for big fight de­but

Ayrshire Post - - SPORTS -

A foot­ball hero will don box­ing gloves for the first time be­fore hun­dreds of ex­cited fight fans.

Ayr United leg­end David Kennedy will take part in a three- around ex­hi­bi­tion match at Mar­tial May­hem at the Ci­tadel on Satur­day.

Kennedy, 51, in­sists it’s a one off ap­pear­ance when he takes on fel­low Wos­sobama Gym reg­u­lar Paul Cur­ran.

David re­vealed: “My per­sonal trainer Billy McCann talked me in to it and claims it will be on the last roar for the auld yin.

“Both of us have never boxed be­fore — bob and weave will be the name of the game for me.

“The pres­sure is on Paul as he is in 30s but Billy has been ham­mer­ing me at train­ing — I even had to get an eye in­jury glued.

“The weigh- in is at Boswells on Fri­day night when I have to turn up in my un­der­wear.”

The Xtrme Com­bat starts at 12.30pm with tick­ets still avail­able. Colin McGregor de­fends the STBA 67kg Scot­tish ti­tle against David Fer­gu­son.
