Brit boxer champ Ronnie Clark selling belt so he can buy son Christmas present

IBF EUROPEAN super-featherweight champion Ronnie ‘Shark’ Clark is selling his championship belt on eBay to raise money to buy his son a Christmas present.

Clark won the belt in February against the previously undefeated Zelfa Barrett via a majority decision at York Hall in London.

However, Clark is now looking to sell his prized possession on eBay – in order to fund money for his son’s Christmas presents.

The 33-year-old was due to face Sam Bowen on December 15, but due to an injury in sparring, Clark's opponent had to pull out.

As the fight was cancelled, Clark put his belt on eBay with no reserve looking to get any money possible.

Clark said in the description on the items listing on eBay: “I am selling my official IBF European Super Featherweight Belt that I won in February.

“I have with it an option of it to be signed or not it's totally up to the buyer.

“It's on an auction with no reserve due to my next fight not happening as my opponent has pulled out injured so I have no money to buy my son Christmas.

“These official belts go for a good bit of money so good luck with all and grab yourself a bargain… Respect Ronnie "The Shark" Clark.

“I may deliver the belt personally to make sure it will get to the winning bidder safely.”

Clark had another fight scheduled for Saturday night in Aberdeen, but once again due to an injury to his opponent the fight was called off.

The Scotsman took to his Facebook to explain the difficult time he is going through at the moment.

He said: "I am absolutely gutted, I have been on a rollercoaster ride this past few days, again my fight is off tomorrow and am honestly so sorry.

“It's a very difficult sport at times, I sometimes actually can't believe it's real. I am staying positive though and I will embrace things and get back into the gym on Monday!

Keeping myself ticking over! That fight won’t be too far away.

“So after a few ups and downs this past few months, my bad boy of a belt has gone onto the eBay market. Please feel free to share a bit of boxing memorabilia."
