Default Lionel Rose MBE RIP

Just heard from Australia that Lionel Rose has passed away. So sorry to hear this, my heart and thoughts are with Jenny and Lionels family.
RIP Champ.
Deepest sympathy from the Rudkin family

Where did you hear this from? Lionel's health has not been good for a while.

Really sad, they kept in touch over the years and met up a couple of years ago in Australia.
Here's a message we recorded for Lionel on his induction to legendary status by the Australian boxing hall of fame. Dad died only 3 days after this.

The message says it all
Respect!
