There are so many good people involved in boxing and some stand out, great boxings characters.
..Scorpio Lodge is like a boxing institution up in Townsville..established back in the '70's and has had a who's who of local fighters within' it's ranks..amatuers and pro's...there's a couple of guys like Scooter and Gonzo Hooper and Junior Thompson and Sharkey Hughes who i could put you in contact with if you ever wanted to look into it further..to me there's a book of it's own there with the characters that have come and gone over the years..current referee/judge Tony Kettlewell is another..he had over 100 amatuer fights with Scorpio..
