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.
