...yep...his old man Tommy had a club in Cloncurry and came down to a couple of amateur shows I put on in Charters Towers back in '98/'99...I can't remember much about Rocky 'cept I liked the sound of his name..but one thing I knew about Tommy was that he traveled huge distances in a weekend to get his fighters fights..all in a dirty old 4 cyl Carolla or a old Mazda or something...it was boxing on a budget..drive through the night..fight..then drive home...sort of typifies the commitment that was needed to keep boxing alive out the bush and to keep gettin' kids fights...sounds like all the miles and the hard work payed off for Tommy and Rocky.
