Boxer dies of heatstroke training in Thailand


A Scottish boxer has died in Thailand of suspected heatstroke.

Jordan Coe, 20, was found dead in a heavy tracksuit and is understood to have been trying to reach a certain weight for a profession­al fight.

Mr Coe, of Maddiston, Falkirk, was a profession­al Muay Thai boxer and trained at Carnage Mhay Thai Gym in Grangemout­h, but moved to Ubon Ratchantha­ni, Thailand, to pursue his dream. Craig Floan, his former coach, said a fundraisin­g page had been set up to bring his body back home.
