Default Pedlar Palmer

Reading about him in this weeks Boxing News, apparently a books being published about him. Im a little ashamed to admit I'd never even heard of him. Former ****ney bantamweight world champ who enjoyed a couple of wins over George Dixon. His reign as champ seems to have been ended in spectacular fashion by Terry McGovern who knocked him out in the first round. Came back to fight Jim Driscoll several years after retiring but was stopped early. Certainly not a knockout artist he ended up with a 45(5)-15-4 record, not too bad. Apparently he had a bit of a temper as well, he was charged with manslaughter. Anyone else have info on this guy?
