Appeal for tragic boxer Mike Towell nears target
An appeal to raise money for the family of Scottish boxer Mike Towell who died following a televised bout is nearing its £20,000 target as the sport faces questions over safety.
Former World Champion boxer Ricky Hatton set up the fundraiser for Towell's partner, Chloe Ross, and young son, Rocco.
A "heartbroken" Ms Ross spoke of her loss and said Towell, from Dundee, had been suffering from headaches in the weeks before Thursday's fight as politician and doctors questioned the safety of the sport.
The boxer's management team said they were not aware of any headache complaints.
