Scot England’s professional boxing debut ended in a crushing defeat.
England was coming up against 23-year-old Jashawn Hunter, who had lost all of previous six contests but managed to drop England in 5 seconds. He bravely managed to get to his feet but his corner stopped the fight.

Prior to the fight England had set his sights on a record.
"When I step into the ring, I will become the oldest professional welterweight boxer in the world," Scot England said of his upcoming match. Scot is almost 59. He credits his ambition to his trainers at Champion's Corner in Murfreesboro…and his long friendship with Muhammad Ali pic.twitter.com/5Aob4R4WpC

Credit to anyone that steps into the ring but how on earth was this allowed to take place?
