Never heard of him before, but being a 2-time 'world' champion at 2 different weights is nothing to be sniffed at (even though the WBO was relatively new back then).

Edit: Seen there is some footage of him on Youtube, will give it a watch later

Used to watch him on TV back in the day, he was the first ever winner of the newly created WBO belt at his weight at the time, won it in under 10 fights too
Only wish I had recorded the fights... My memory is pretty hazy about just how good he was though, in comparison to todays fighters etc.

Used to see gim in Glesga Toon centre back when he was champ, wee quiet guy who just walked about minding his own business.

Maybe I will check him out on YT, go on a wee nostalgia trip.

I'm just kidding.

You seen Colin Brown? A cruiserweight back in the day boxed on afew Weir undercards. Was a brilliant amatuer, something like 3x Heavyweight champ of Scotland and no one would fight him.
