[quote=TED 822;13516271]Thanks for that,Al.Also saw him on TV against Don Johnson,who was a top rated contender.It was over here and I think Winstone was robbed.Doesnt happen in the UK very often nowadays.Also against another top ten man Rafiu King.Howard off the floor to win clearly,which confirms what we already know about him.Didnt see him against Floyd Robertson,who became champ AFTER Howard beat him.Beat Johnson clearly in return ,and got the decision.Carl Froch wasnt the first to go on a roll.
Bet thats a few beers youll never forget,Al
Rest in Peace,Howard.[/QUOTE

Certainly won't Ted, I'm good mates with Howard Jnr now. We always have a drink together at boxing dinners and meetings. Incidentally Don Johnson was my dad, Alan Rudkin's sparring partner for the Lionel Rose fight. Good fighter Johnson, you know he fought both Jimmy Carruthers and Lionel Rose. When he fought Rose, Carruthers was the refereee.
