Brain scan rules Gary out of fight

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motoring Guide -

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.
