Don't want to hijack the thread, but I don't really know where to put the below vid.

Anyway, I was flicking through the channels the other night and seen on BN that a programme about Billy Walker was coming up, so I put that on. However, a documentary following Joe Bugner - and, to a lesser extent, Joe Frazier - on the day of their fight was screened instead.

Despite it not being the programme I intended on watching, I thought it was great and I'm glad I put it on:

If only boxing still generated the buzz it did back then...

I like the Reaperman though, Strange fighter really bit of a waste.
Going on old memories now SPB, but the build up got so heated that someone in Reids camp was alleged to have spiked Joe Calzaghes ice cream with glass!
& who saved the day? Richie Woodhall. Spotted the glass in Joes ice cream.

The welsh lads on here may be able to come up with some evidence that I didnt dream it, cos I cant find anything about it on the web!

****in crazy build up that was, but look at Robin in this short doc, he comes over as a great fella!

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSon6XgogH4&feature=channel&list=UL[/ame]

I know a guy that met him too, & explained him like you see him in the doc, a great guy to be around. You may have seen it SPB, but to the younger folk, a glimpse of the mindset of a prime Reid!

& he truly did have a strange record, Reid came around at a stage where I wasnt following boxing as much, the move to SKY of the top fighters meant I lost touch a bit, & as a result lost interest a bit. It was watching fights down the local, & as such in that type of atmosphere, out with your mates & sinking beers watching the fights whilst fighting to get a drink at the bar & having to run to the toilet to take a **** constantly due to the lager consumption- I couldnt give fights full attention anymore.

Only got back into it when I became mates with a bloke who had sky, & was an even bigger fan of boxing than me!

people love SKY now, but it was the **** that killed off boxing as a mainstream sport to rival the football in my eyes

PS, hope you dont mind me putting the links to the doc in SPB, dont want to go all off-topic. Just tell me & I will take them out if you wish. & I wont even hold a grudge

Great viewing that. Yank Durham a month before his death, Burt Reynolds and Ryan O'Neil , in general fun to watch.

Said it before, I'll say it again...this needs a sticky. When people get involved (self included soon) this is a great source for lost gems.

Nice one SpB
