Great stuff JG. I've grown up in a world of boxing myself. It's been a great place to grow up in. The old fighters and the stories, can't get enough of it.
I'm old enough to remember meeting as a child the likes of Peter Kane, Larry Gains and Ernie Roderick. When I'm with my dad he tells him about the men he met and knew. Dempsey, Carpentier, Kid Berg, Ted Kid Lewis, Len Harvey and all the lesser known names from the past.

I never seen a thread about Junior Jones, he knocked out Barrera before Pac did and did it more convincing but nobody ever mentions him. Pac became a god to most people after he beat Barrera yet Junior Jones remained a nobody and we all know why he did.

Though you're in the U.K., AF, and I'm in the U.S., our memories growing up -- albeit for the names of the fighters -- are the same.

I can still remember when I was about five or six Jack Dempsey leaning down:"Put up your dukes!"

When I did, he roared with laughter 'n scooped-me-up with one hand, tousled my hair, and held me in the crease of his shoulder; the monument of his face next to mine.

Hiroshi Kpbayashi, Rafael Herrera, Raul "Jibaro" Perez, Johnny Famechon, Paul Fuji, Kuniaki Shibata, Yoshio Shirai, Paul Pender, Clemente Sanchez...to name a few of the more relatively obscure champions of the past.

I'd say the great Thai-boxer Pone Kingpetch needs a thread. Had some good fights with both pascual perez and fighting harada.

Well this has turned out very nicely people!

Eder Jofre was a great shout, he was fantastic and barely gets a word. Len Harvey as well, lovely fighter. Pone Kingpetch; good shout.

Both Panama Al and Joe Brown were very interesting characters with hectic careers.
