Boxing: Ray of hope for Simmons and Delhi tilt
"One of our past corporate club sponsors, Dechmont Forklift Trucks, have asked for a meeting to discuss the level of financial support they can give Steve after learning of his plight,'' he said. "Although it is unlikely, due to the recession, to be the full 2,000 that Steve Simmons is seeking it is, nevertheless, a welcome start."
A delighted Simmons said: "This is wonderful news - it will help my frame of mind no end."
Meanwhile, Scottish amateur boxing's Jimmy Dunn has confirmed that for the first time Scottish boxers aged between 14 and 18 will be able to win a full international vest after Dunn and Amateur Boxing Scotland bosses Richard Thomas and Fraser Walker cut a deal that will see Schoolboy, Youth and Junior boxers take part in full internationals against England, Ireland and Wales in Scotland between 11-18 December.
