A truly superb post Janitor! Many thanks mate!!! One can only learn from such posts! Indeed such posts they are one of the main reasons I joined this site! I was fascinated to learn that there was a championship fight in the city of Newcastle, England, in 1902, which is where I live!!!! What a quiz question that is going to make. Many thanks, once again!!
