    'I'm glad we could put on a show': Tragic final words of British boxer Scott Westgarth, 31, who died hours after he appeared in pain during this post-fight interview.

    A British boxer has died after being rushed to hospital moments after he appeared in pain during a post-fight interview which he ended with the words, 'I'm glad we could put on a show and keep everyone entertained'.

    Scott Westgarth, 31, had earned a win on points over ten sometimes brutal rounds against Dec Spellman on Saturday, during which both men were knocked down on the canvas.

    The light heavyweight was holding his head and wincing in a post-fight interview and stumbled to the back of The Dome in Doncaster before paramedics took him to hospital.

    He died at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital last night, prompting tributes from boxing legends including Frank Bruno, Ricky Hatton, as well as British fighter James DeGale and promoter Eddie Hearn.

    Speaking to boxing news site and streaming service Boxing Social after the fight, Westgarth praised his opponent and said he could see why he had won 11 professional bouts in a row.

    And he added: ‘He’s a good fighter and I can see why he was 11-0. But at the end of the day I wanted it just as much as he wanted it and ultimately I box away all the time.
