I've just been reading that Artie henderson supposedly boxed afew booth fights with a young Jimmy Wilde whilst touring in wales. From what I read Wilde did quite well using his speed, bear in mind Henderson was pretty much a grown adult in his prime and Wilde was a teenager. The newspaper remarked

'The young welsh pugilist (Wilde) held the upperhand in the power of punching department, however when both men were sparring the cunning Henderson was superb with his feints and jabbing. Wilde won many fans with his gutsy effort with his quick fists and hard blows, but the mining crowd were thouroughly impressed with the clever punching Englishman.'

Good find. I recall reading a similar article regarding an elderly Henderson sparring Benny Lynch.
