More than £7,000 is to be donated to the family of tragic Dundee boxer Mike Towell.
Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has lived up to his promise to donate ticket sales from Ricky Burn’s world title fight last week.
Today, Hearn revealed that £3,720 was made during the fight, but he is to double that to £7,440.
