The names are correct as above, and the weights are now correct with Famengo's alterations.

There's a signed version of that same picture available. But it's unfortunately lacking Bobby Dunne's signature as he'd passed away (in 1992) prior to the signing.

The same 5 champs appear on the cover of a very good Aussie boxing book written by Bev Will:

Fair comment based on the cover. But what do they say about judging a book by it's cover???

Actually a very good read, even though it's comparitively old stuff from the Fammo, Rose days. Includes some excellent Aussie stories on the likes of Ramon, Lovi, Ferreri, Thornberry etc.
