Barnsley Boxer Battles Leukaemia

Tuesday November 11 2014

BARNSLEY boxer Lee Noble has revealed he is battling leukaemia.

The 27-year-old middleweight, from Dodworth, had won his last five bouts and had set his sights on winning the English title.

Noble announced his illness on Facebook, writing: "Well it's fair to say my heart and soul as been torn out - I’ve been diagnosed with leukaemia. Please don’t worry for me just support and pray for me, it’s just another fight in my life I have to win."

Lee had his first session of chemotherapy on November 5 and has vowed to fight the disease.

"I promise to you all I will fight and fight and fight and fight until this horrible disease dies and leaves me alone," he added.

"This is just another chapter in my crazy life and with all your love and support and my fight we will kick its a**e."
