Bellshill boxer Ronnie Nailen missed the last Fight Club event with a broken hand, but is now healed and aiming to be number one in Britain.

Nailen competes for the EBF British and Celtic titles at the Alona Hotel on Saturday, November 22.

He said: “I was gutted to miss the last show, but I knew as soon as I took off my bandages the knuckle was broken.

“Normally it takes a few days for the bruising to appear, but it was there right away so I had to keep away from punching for over a month and let it heal.

“It’s just a reminder that you have to be careful and that injuries can happen, even when you are the one throwing the punch, so you have to take it very seriously.

“But I’m back now and aiming to prove I am the best middleweight at this semi-professional level in Britain.

“I know the fights are only going to get harder, but I couldn’t have a better place to train than Fighting Scots.”
