Vegan boxer takes national title
Scottish boxer Ross McAllister is delighted to return to the Scottish nationals to become champion of his country.
Boxing in the 71kg light middleweight champion, he went one better than the second place of last year with a win this year. The sport reflects the rules of Olympic boxing, and Ross has been regional champion as well as a national force.
“I’ve put in a lot of work and it paid off in the end” Ross said in a post fight interview. He fought three times to take the win, facing a multiple Scottish Champion in the final. Ross’ opponent was previously unbeaten in eleven matches; Ross took the win with unanimous decision.
Ross is approaching ten years vegan.
“My family adopted a dog in September 2013, it what made me realise how sentient animals were, it completely changed how I looked at them” he says. He went vegetarian instantly, and 2014’s New Year resolution was to go vegan.
“A few weeks after that I noticed the health, fitness and recovery benefits and when Cowspiracy came out is when I realised I was doing all the right things for the environment as well.”
Congratulations to Ross on his success in this demanding and fiercely competitive sport.
