He showed a few skills there. A shame he got into the drugs, what a waste.

speaking of grange hill, do you know where i can buy em on dvd? The retail versions are crap, they edited over the dialog that may semm offensive for todays AudiendceAlso the original music used in some scenes are edited due to copyright.

Its nice to see some proper amateur boxing for a change, sans headgear, working a bit on the inside and throwing the occasional body shot.

That's the way we amateurs used to fight back in the day.KOs and stoppages were common and it made for a good spectacle.

Lee was never into drugs, that was the Zammo character from Grange Hill, Lee was injured in a car crash which ended his boxing career. Lee now runs his own locks smiths business in Wallington Surrey.

The footage was of the actor in "real life" not Zammo the character .

Good fight that from 'back in the day'. Was good programme that, always used to watch it and complain that my little provincial ABC would never get on. Completely forgot about club amateur boxing being on terrestrial telly so thanks for posting.
