Dundee will host its first professional boxing show in almost a quarter of a century later this year.
Local legend Dick McTaggart, who won gold in the sport in the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, is throwing his weight behind the bout.
The event in September has been named Homecoming in his honour and will be open to around 2500 spectators.
The organisers say the aim is to attract more young people into the ring and to find the city's next sporting hero.
Dick McTaggart said: "It was the greatest honour of my life, greatest thing in my life to win a gold medal.
"They need more sportsmen coming from Dundee, I've done it, my family boxed but they've all retired so I'm glad it's come back to Dundee and it'll maybe encourage other children to take up the boxing as well which I would love to see."
