The clutching would come back to haunt Akinwande, of course.

He did stop him. Kilimanjaro was a pretty good fighter but lacked stamina. Hughroy Currie had beaten him couple of years earlier when Harry Gibbs had to virtually beg the shattered African from quitting in the ninth and 10th rounds. It was hilarious.
Kilimanjaro made it to the final bell.

Yeah, I remember when Ampofo challenged for a world title at little York Hall (I think against Baby Jake) there was an outcry that a world title fight could be staged at such a small hall. How times have changed.
Regan and Ampofo were genuine world class flyweights.

Bennies Knowledge of is second to none. With a memory like yours one can only assume you never took too many. A life of debauchery robbed me of my remaining brain cell.
What was the reason John Lyons never turned over?

Kevin was a good super heavy, always in the mix back then, I remember all of the old boys that Duff and Lawless had in the late 80's.. Horace, Mason, Bruno, Akinwande, even Jesse Ferguson was signed with Duff... I remember whenever Frank would box a giant main event in London (Albert hall for instance,) Horace would take on a dangerous domestic kid or a decent Import .. while on the arse end of the card Mason would take on a old cruiserweight and get rid of him in a couple of rounds .. ie.. Ricky Parkey, Alphonso Ratliff... I remember Ratliff almost upsetting Mason in a very tricky fight for Gary... when Horace had to retire it pushed Gary forward as the new Bruno understudy and he had to raise his game against Tyrell Biggs for Eg.. when Henry Akinwande made his debut against a guy named Carleton Headley who would later become a member of the Gladiators TV show.. I was at the Biggs fight in 1989 and Akinwande was 1st on, it lasted about 20 seconds , a one two leveled Headley almost out of the ring.. When anyone ever asked Duff about a Bruno v Mason fight .. he would just cough and change the subject... it was dodgy area for him with money invested in both men... Not long after that Lewis made his enrty onto the scene , he was paraded around that night like a brand new shiny car that had never even been test ran... I spoke to Lennox then and he was a Giant even as a newbie.. and a very confident talker...

George and Ray Gilbody were brilliant amateurs who won a hatful of ABA titles between them and, from memory, were the first brothers to win ABA titles on the same night (1980). Ray did a real number on Jim McDonnell that night and both brothers went to the Moscow Olympics.
George also held Thomas Hearns to a majority over here in an amateur international but never went pro.
Ray turned pro too late but picked up a British title with a good win over a weight-weakened John Feeney and also challenged (unsuccessfully) for the European title a couple of times. His last fight was against Hardy, who stopped him.

Yeah, I watched him box live at Gloucester in 1987 in the all-England ABA championships but I cannot remember against whom (he won, of course). John was a right tearaway in his early amateur years but developed a much smoother style under trainer Tony Smart and, indeed, became an education in how to box: nothing flashy, good movement, jab, sharp right hand, nice left hook to the body inside... He rarely wasted his time on uppercuts.
His record speaks for itself: he won eight ABA titles. Nobody has ever won that many ABA titles. Nobody ever will.

PS: He never turned over because he had good sponsorship.
