Had a pint with him about 2 months ago in 'The Big House' in town. Honest fighter who made the most of his ability & as mentioned a total gent.

Should've went Stateside for a prolonged period, they'd have loved him (given his Irish roots) and he'd have made a lot more cash than he ended up making.

If him & Ward fight 10 times they win 5 each. Just one of those things.

All action fighter and great to watcvh but I disagree with HmH. Ward was just a better fighter and would have beat Neary a lot more often than not....thats not hindsight either, I had money on Ward to beat Shea that night at odds against.

Only watched his fights back now years later - he's all action make no mistake, but I have to also disagree with HmH, I think Ward just had the edge and was teetering on world class whereas Shea would be a tier below. Only just, though.

How good is his son ? Think he won the ABA's last year didnt he ?

His fight with Ward is a classic, the punch Ward finished it with is a thing of beauty !

Although a level below world class, he was for a period arguable one of the five biggest British/Irish fighters of the time. He never let ITV down when they covered his fights.

When you bought a ticket to watch him fight you got value for money.

Always in exciting fights real crowd pleasing style.

If I remember a recent interview about the Ward fight and the rest of his career he was really struggling to try and make 140lb.
