Brain scan rules Gary out of fight
A Rutherglen boxer who was due to enter the ring for his first professional fight was left in shock after health chiefs found a problem in his brain scan.
Fernhill’s Gary Ducie was due to box Jamie Quinn at Paisley’s Lagoon Leisure Centre on Saturday night.
But the 21-year-old, who works at Limond’s Gym in Cambuslang, received a phone call two days before the evening event telling him he could not go ahead with the fight following his brain scan he had taken six weeks previously. Gary explained:“I am still waiting on the results. “I had to go for a brain scan and then something came up on the brain. I don’t know what it is yet. But I got a call on Thursday saying I couldn’t go ahead and fight. “I’m disappointed. It was a bit of a shock to me.” Gary, who trains with former British and Commonwealth light welterweight champion Willie Limond, turned professional with Limond Productions earlier this year.
He admitted he was unsure who his first fight as a pro would be against but is hoping to arrange a bout soon.
