The Ingle fighter (aka Barry Awad) sold his pants to sponsor Wayne North (WM Installations) after both were moved by the death of Westgarth, after a fight in Doncaster, recently.

Ingle trainer Amer Kkhan said: “It was a terrible tragedy for Scott’s family and the whole boxing community has felt for them and his close friends and gym-mates.

“Wayne was happy to make a gesture and Barry was just as pleased to hand over the money to Glyn Rhodes and Tommy Frank at Scott’s gym.

“Personally, I have sparred with Scott in the past and he was an iron-man, who never cut any corners and was a credit to the sport.

“I thought he was a very good kid and had a promising future before such a tragedy happened to him.”
