TOMORROW marks the 80th anniversary of Gorbals legend Benny Lynch's world championship win.

And to mark the occasion a travelling exhibition about the boxer will move to the Kelvin Hall - the scene of the victory.

On October 13 1937, Benny defeated challenger Peter Kane in Glasgow to retain his World Championship title.

In a 13 round fight Lynch finally overcame his opponent to win by a technical knock out.

Now, 80 years to the day, the event will be commemorated at the Kelvin Hall, the place of many a world championship fight from Benny Lynch to Jim Watt.

Benny’s World and European Championship trophies he won on that night will be on display with his boxing gloves, photographs and other material relating to the boxer.

Organisers will also be screening highlights of the original fight from Pathe news on a big screen, the first time this has been shown in public.

And there will be boxing training and demonstrations from a local gym in Glasgow as well as the chance to find out about the Statue for Benny campaign.

The event runs from 11am until 3pm on Friday, October 13.
