Newark boxer Tom Cowling pulls out of Carl Greaves' Scunthorpe card
Newark prospect Tom Cowling is fighting for his future in boxing.
Manager Carl Greaves rated Cowling’s professional debut as one of the best he’s seen — but has had to pull the 22-year-old off Friday's show in Scunthorpe and fears he may not box again.
Cowling has been struck down by sciatica — pain affecting the back, hip, and outer side of the leg — leaving him barely able to walk.
