The funeral of boxer Scott Westgarth takes place in Sheffield, UK on May 29.

Westgarth, 31, died after falling ill following his victory over Scunthorpe’s Dec Spelman on February 25.

The two fought out a 10-round light-heavyweight bout at Doncaster’s Dome Arena. He was then rushed to hospital following the bout.

Spelman, who suffered his first professional defeat at the hands of Westgarth, paid tribute to his opponent after the fight and wrote: “Absolutely heartbroken and lost for words.

“I’ll continue to pray for Scott’s family and the people close to him. Rest easy my friend.”
