“Lock Stock the f***in lot!”

“Lock Stock the f***in lot!”
Limond has stood toe-to-toe with some of the biggest players in the sport of boxing.

“Hopefully if everything goes to plan then you will see some of my fighters fighting in a joint venture with Erik Morales…”

Willie Limond is a name synonymous with British and Scottish boxing. Not only is he a gentleman but he is a hell of a fighter having stood toe-to-toe with some of the biggest players in the sport of boxing including Amir Khan and Mexican ring legend Erik Morales. The proud Scotsman has come a long way since pulling on an Albion Rovers shirt as a professional footballer to lacing up his boxing gloves before trying on his promoter’s shoes for Lock Stock Promotions. Yes, that’s right. Willie Limond is taking strides into the cutthroat world of promoting boxing while continuing his title-laden career as a pugilist despite what some people may think.

“I’m going to fight on,” Willie told boxing.com before revealing a potential link up with former world champion and ex-sparring partner Erik Morales. “Hopefully if everything goes to plan then you will see some of my fighters fighting in L.A. in a joint venture with Erik Morales.” he said. “There is some talk of a WBC interim title chance for myself with Lock Stock’s fighters featuring on the undercard if everything goes to plan.”

Some might say it could prove a difficult career choice, living on both sides of the proverbial boxing fence, still, I have no doubt that Willie can handle both roles with the assistance of boxing trainer and manager Billy Nelson and businessman James White at the helm of Lock Stock Promotions.

In early October, Willie Limond introduced Lock Stock Promotion’s newest roster of fighters to the world signaling the company’s intent on establishing Scotland’s brightest boxing stars at the forefront of the Domestic, European and World stage with six shows a year scheduled to take place in and around Scotland. Lock Stock’s debut show will be live from Glasgow’s Bellahouston Sports Centre on November 27th and promises to entertain the punch purists attending the show.

Some of the fighters who will feature on the night are…..

Scott Allan is a former world champion kickboxer who competes at super-bantamweight. He brings a fight record of four wins, one draw and one loss. The “Title Taker” and will be looking justify his moniker on November 27th as he looks to secure the Scottish bantamweight title against Dundee native Jamie Wilson (7-1) in which promoter Willie Limond described as a “real trade fight.”

Lewis “Sandman” Ritson hails from the English City of Newcastle and is currently under the stewardship of decorated trainer and partner in Lock Stock Promotions, Billy Nelson. The former England captain is currently undefeated and looking to add to his unblemished fight record on November 27th, many people are tipping Lewis for great things. With a come-forward style and great work ethic, it isn’t hard to see why many people including British boxing’s biggest promoters have been circling the Tyne & Wear pugilist for a considerable amount of time.

Edinburgh prizefighter, Jason Easton is a novice in the professional ranks having only recently made the cross over from the amateurs in July of this year. Billy Nelson has described Easton as a great prospect and one hopes that the super lightweight fighter will be knocking on the door of the British Champions in the not too distant future.

Making their professional debuts are, Stefan Sanderson, former unbeaten amateur pugilist Steph “Boom Boom” McAuslan and Keiran Smith. Other fighters confirmed are Ryan Smith (4-0) and Mohammed Babazadeh (3-0).
