Default British boxing hall of fame

Sorry it's been quiet. I've been flying under the radar until the intellectual property rights were granted. Trademark came through yesterday so from Monday it's full steam ahead. The BBHOF will be launched in May 2011 on the last date of the Champions tour.

Jimmy Wilde ? how many American tours did Lenny go on ? ie spend 18 months away just him and his Mrs bumming around fighting v blokes that would take on a fighter with stones in his pocket to make " Min weight " ?greatest British fighter of all times is a mighty boast mate .I do agree though modern times Lennox was the kiddie .

Cheers Greg. I had to be low key until the certificate came through because people were sniffing around. The launch will be on the British leg of the tour. Kicks off at the MGM Grand in may and goes through Old Trafford, French Open, Euro Boxing championships in Dublin and Wimbledon.

I want to bring as many of you boys along as possible ad my guests.

Don't get that on boxrec do ya?

Induct Larry O and Paul Smith, I love them both and think they are worthy for the BBHoF.

Conteh, Lewis, Graham, Naz, Benn, Eubank, Watson, Bruno, Reid, JC....
