The welsh lads on here may be able to come up with some evidence that I didnt dream it, cos I cant find anything about it on the web!

****in crazy build up that was, but look at Robin in this short doc, he comes over as a great fella!

I know a guy that met him too, & explained him like you see him in the doc, a great guy to be around. You may have seen it SPB, but to the younger folk, a glimpse of the mindset of a prime Reid!

& he truly did have a strange record, Reid came around at a stage where I wasnt following boxing as much, the move to SKY of the top fighters meant I lost touch a bit, & as a result lost interest a bit. It was watching fights down the local, & as such in that type of atmosphere, out with your mates & sinking beers watching the fights whilst fighting to get a drink at the bar & having to run to the toilet to take a **** constantly due to the lager consumption- I couldnt give fights full attention anymore.

Only got back into it when I became mates with a bloke who had sky, & was an even bigger fan of boxing than me!

people love SKY now, but it was the **** that killed off boxing as a mainstream sport to rival the football in my eyes
Oh i remember that! I didn't know they thought Reid's team spiked it..

Thanks for the vid's Dunky will give them a watch now .
