FIGHTERS from Central Fife will take centre stage next week when an action-packed boxing show returns to Lochgelly.

Glenrothes Boxing Club, who can count Kelty pro Connor Law and Lochgelly's Scottish female light flyweight champion Emma McCulloch in their ranks, are bringing an event back to the town hall on Friday May 26 following the success of a show in January.

That event, the first of its kind to held in the town for decades, attracted a sell-out 250 crowd to watch Glenrothes members take on opponents from other clubs in Scotland and England.

The 'Glenrothes Boxing Team versus Scotland select' evening will feature a number of boxers from the Cowden-Gelly area including Emma, who fought for Scotland at the weekend's GB Three Nations Championships in Cardiff.

She will take on Lochend's Nasreen Anderson - who she defeated to win the Boxing Scotland 48kg title last month - while fellow Lochgelly boxer Bruce Gregory will make his debut for the club.

Others that will be in action include Cowdenbeath youngsters Rachel Kippen and Bradley Innes, Lochgelly's Colin Gravison and Cardenden's Sam Dick, and Glenrothes coach Stevie McGuire said: "We're boxing the rest of Scotland so we've got people from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Perth, Hawick, Dunfermline, Grangemouth and Broxburn coming. There's 14-15 bouts on the bill and they're all good boxers, so it should be a top show.

"Emma will be boxing Nasreen Anderson and Bruce Gregory is making his debut against a guy from Hawick. Bradley Innes will be there and this will be the third fight for Rachel Kippen, who's only 14-15. There's a good 3-4 from Lochgelly and probably about half the bill are from Lochgelly, Cowdenbeath and that area.

"Tickets are going well and we've got a Manny Pacquiao signed glove and a pair of signed Anthony Joshua shorts for auction on the night too."

The action begins at 7.30pm and tickets cost £20, £35 and £45.
