Dick­son suf­fers train­ing in­jury

West Lothian Courier - - Sports -

Liv­ingston boxer Thomas Dick­son has been forced to pull out of his sched­uled MTK Scot­land bout in Pais­ley on De­cem­ber 16 af­ter pick­ing up an in­jury.

The 28-year-old will be out for six weeks af­ter sus­tain­ing tis­sue dam­age to his hand which will bring to an end what has been a frus­trat­ing 2017.

Af­ter an im­pres­sive first year as a pro in which he picked up six wins from seven bouts, a string of in­juries has seen him take to the ring only twice this year.

His pro record now stands at 7-2.

How­ever, he is hop­ing for a quick re­turn to the ring, say­ing:“I will re­turn early in 2018 re­freshed and re­fo­cused for a big year of box­ing.”

While Dick­son will not be on the card in Pais­ley, there will still be West Loth­ian in­ter­est as both Ai­dan McG­lynn and Martin Tay­lor are gear­ing up for the Christ­mas Cracker card.
