PRESSURE of work has forced Willie Limond, the former Commonwealth lightweight champion from Glasgow, to shelve plans to make his comeback on the undercard of Lee McAllister's European title bout in Aberdeen on February 25.
Limond, 33, had hoped to join giant Highland heavyweight Gary Cornish on the Exhibition Centre bill after suffering the heaviest defeat of his 38-fight career when he was outpointed by British champion Anthony Crolla last November.
But the boxer's manager, Tommy Gilmour revealed: "Willie has a living to earn outside the ring at his trade as a joiner and hasn't been able to train as much as he would have wanted."
CYCLING: Alberto Contador has been stripped of his 2010 Tour de France victory and handed a two-year ban by the Court of Arbitration for Sport following his positive test for clenbuterol.
It was initially announced the Spaniard had failed a doping test in September 2010, shortly after he had won his third Tour – he was also victorious in the sport's biggest race in 2007 and 2009.
The 29-year-old always maintained his innocence, claiming contaminated meat was to blame for the failed test, and rejected an offer from the Spanish Cycling Federation to serve a 12-month suspension.
In February 2011, the RFEC then decided to withdraw any sanction against Contador, a decision which was appealed at CAS by the International Cycling Union and World Anti-Doping Agency.
All results he obtained since January 2011 will be wiped from the record books, meaning that in addition to Contador losing the 2010 Tour crown, his win in the 2011 Giro d'Italia will no longer be recognised.
The 2010 Tour title will now go to Andy Schleck of Luxembourg.
