Just a few days before his 15th birthday, a PROMISING kid boxer passed away in a tragic holiday accident.

On September 29, Edinburgh native Jack Pollock tragically passed away in Portugal.

“Shattered broken all in one. I’m here with you and I just wished you were sitting here beside me.”

“Shattered broken all in one. I’m here with you and I just wished you were sitting here beside me.”

 

He added: “Things will never be the same, we never expected this to happen on holiday.

“We need him to be a peace and home. We will bring you home no matter what.”

Darryl also told of his son’s dedication to boxing and his loved ones.

Speaking to Edinburgh Live, he said: “He was really passionate about his boxing. Even on his days off he was out a run and always gave it 150 per cent, there was no slacking from Jack.

“I’ll say one thing about Jack and that is the fact he was a protector. All of his friends went to him if they had any trouble as he was their rock.

“If ever you needed anything, he would be the first to dash out of his house and help you out.

“He also loved his music but his passion was being out with his pals.”

The adolescent received a sorrowful tribute from Jack’s boxing club as well.

One of the Granton Amateur Boxing Club’s trainers, David Barclay, claimed to have refrained from crying as he wrote tributes to Jack.

He wrote: “On behalf of myself and everyone at the Granton amateur boxing club we would like to share our deepest condolences with Jack’s family with a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat.

“I can tell you that Jack’s passing has devastated a full community.

“Just under a year ago you walked into my gym full of ideas and mischief a typical teenage boy who absolutely loved boxing.

“As everyone who was involved with Jack would agree this kid had the heart of a lion. In my personal opinion this kid would have went far in the boxing world.
