Boxing legend backs anti-knife campaign in Lanarkshire
Chris Eubank has lent his support to the new initiative today with a visit to the Fighting Scots Gym in Bellshil.
The Lanarkshire gym have launched an initiative to keep blades out of the hands of youths.
The aim is to curb anti-social behaviour by getting young people in the ring and
instilling discipline in them.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of the consequences that knife crime can have and to instead promote a better lifestyle involving fitness, boxing, self-defence and self-discipline
Francis and his gym staff will work in conjunction with local schools and councillors to deliver hard-hitting talks to the area’s pupils about the implications of carrying a knife.
It will also see youths being taught boxing skills as well as work to build their confidence, educate them on nutrition and teach them discipline, health, fitness and well-being.
