Scottish boxer Mike Towell has died in hospital after being seriously injured in a bout on Thursday.

The 25-year-old, from Dundee, was rushed to hospital after a fifth-round loss to Welsh fighter Dale Evans in a St Andrew’s Sporting Club fight at Glasgow’s Radisson Blu Hotel.

Towell’s partner, Chloe Ross, said he “fought right to the end”.

He is only the third professional boxer to die in the UK from apparently fight-related injuries in the past 21 years.
