One of my favourite boxing memories and one of my favourite dad memories too - he didn't give a damn he just said forget school for today just hop on a bus to notts and I'll see you there!! Haha my dad NEVER let me bunk off school EVER thanks dad

What a wondeful memory to cherish Sorry to hear about your Dad.
