Not bad at all! Where'd you get it from? I've got a Max Schmelling set on the way, but it only has about 9 fights or so.

Wish we had some camels in Scotland, rather than most of our women looking like 'em!

Bought myself a Willie Pep career set a while back but haven't really got around to watching it without any distractions.

A fine fighter and one whose career set is worthy of being in anyone's collection.

Though, I wish he really had won a round without throwing a punch as it's one of boxing's greatest stories but sadly just a myth!

Also, his series of fights against Sandy Saddler prove, beyond all doubt, that no matter how good/great a fighter you are, if someone has your number then they've got your number.

Especially if you've suffered life-threatening injuries in a plane crash smack bang in the middle of your prime.

Excatly.

It also goes to show how remarkable Pep was when you consider what he achieved after the near-fatal accident.

Wasn't he out of the ring for a year? When you think how often they fought back then that's like a modern fighter missing 3-4 years out.
