He was meant to be some sort of genius, and the next Sugar Ray Leonard.

I think he was going to enter into Prize Fighter afew years back, but pulled out at the last moment.
Adrian Dodson?

Nah your alright Michael, You win bro .

I remember Dodson getting beaten by Winky Wright in Docklands as a kid. And his famous do-rag.

Khaliq has his own boxing academy up and running, IIRC it's named after him and includes the nickname.

I sadly was told that Dale Robinson walks the streets with a can of drink in his hand looking a state. I hope that's changed it was a few years back but sounded like he lost his way.
I heard the same from a guy who worked with him for a while. It was only this year though so it sounds like he is still the same.

Just did a bit of boxrec surfing looking at Adrian Dodson. Came across a bit of a legend I've never heard of: Mpush Makambi. Looks like he came over and owned every British middleweight!

Anyone seen him fight?

Yeah i remember the name. Can't remember the fights though but probably watched them as he fought Bingam and Foster and Dodson all TV fighters over here.

He seems to be challenging Ajif Djelti for the Domestic Destroyer title.
