DONCASTER Plant Works’ ABC coach Ken Blood says that Doncaster Lions are a knock-out.

The Lions handed the Hexthorpe-based club, who organised a ten-bout show at their annual Dinner-Boxing Show at the Dome in November, a cheque for £2,000.

“We help the Lions raise a lot of money for charity by putting on the boxing, but we’d be really struggling without the money they give us,” Ken told The Star.

“We run three shows a season and each one makes around £1,000, but with our costs soaring every year we’d struggle to meet out overheads without the Lions’ help.”

Plant light-middleweight Jake Westlake will do battle against Bridlington’s George Horner at the Dome tonight in the Yorkshire ABA Belts Challenge - the first time the event has ever being held in the town.
