Funny enough Ted, there was talk of me dad or Walter fighting Howard in 66 or 67, shows how highly McGowan, a flyweight was thought of to be considered for a fight with Winstone, one of the top feathers of the time. Eddie Thomas was quoted as saying that Howard would slap both their arses in the same night.
. Me, me dad and Howard jnr were talking about it a couple of years back after more than a few of pints. Howard said, "I'm glad you didn't fight each other cos you were mates, you wouldn't of fought me dad would you Al". Me dad said, "If the money was right"!
