Watch: Body Snatcher Dillian Whyte lends his support to ill Co Armagh toddler

British boxer Dillian Whyte has extended his support to a ill Co Armagh toddler.

Posting his message of support via Facebook, the hard-hitting heavyweight offered three-year-old Ellen Treanor two ringside tickets to one of his next fights – which could be a world title unification showdown with Anthony Joshua!

The Bessbrook tot was diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma in January – a rare cancer that affects the central nervous system.

Her parents set up Facebook page called Ellen’s Journey to help raise money for life-changing clinical trials in America.

The video from Whyte appeared on Monday evening alongside a message saying: “Great support from Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte. Thanks so much, Ellen’s a great fighter, just like yourself.”

In the video, Whyte said: “I pray to god and hope that you get through this” and told Ellen to “stay strong and keep fighting”.

He offered the battling toddler a chance to watch him fight live saying “when you are well enough, which I am sure you will be very soon, there is some tickets for you and your mum ringside to come see me fight”.

Ellen’s days are either spent in a clinic or as an inpatient at hospital but with the help of this vital fundraising, Ellen’s chances of avoiding a relapse when treatment has concluded will hopefully be greatly improved with this new trial in the US.
