Default Re: Your Favourite Boxing Stories ?

I remember reading that Herol Graham was promised an attractive purse for defending his Commonwealth Lt Middleweight title, it must of been the Hunter Clay fight in Nigeria, and indeed thats what he was apparently left with, somebody absconded with the prize money...and Herol was left with a Leather purse from the local market for his trouble..

Also When Ali fought Blue Lewis in croak park Dublin...a lot of the Locals applauded Ali when making his way to the ring...thinking that he didnt look so big in the flesh...it transpired that they were watching undercard undercard Fighter John Conteh on the way to take on Johnny Mac
