Pugilist (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

boxer

'pugilist' is the definition.
(synonyms)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for boxer that I've seen before include "Pug - dog" , "Asian rebel" , "one that's accustomed to fighting" , "Prizefighter" , "Pugilist - dog" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian, The Mirror, The Independent, the Evening Standard, The Telegraph and the Sydney Morning Herald.
