off topic.i went to a duke mckenzie fight with some mates around 1990 v daniel jiminez in lewisham theatre.

we all drove down to lewisham driving around and around the lewisham 1 way system asking everyone where lewisham theatre is .
i thought it cant be hard i know lewisham very well as i did lewisham shoppoing center sunday market for a few years.

after about half an hour still no one had heard of it.

turns out lewisham threatre is not in lewisham at all it was in bloody catford.

Well done, I had the chance to go to either Benn/Miller or McKenzie/Chitalada; I choose McKenzie and ended getting a Notice/Waters main event.


But Bobby Frankham livened thing up!

Shit, I missed this thread, or I would have answered all of these questions easily.
At least it gave the other posters here a chance to have some fun I suppose, without me spoiling it by getting every question right first time, before anyone else got a chance to answer.

pat cowdell was not a journeyman.

IMO it was the man who ko`d cowdell in 1 round
najib daho a true 20 loss journeyman who would fight anyone and everyone and was a good fighter despite the huge losses on his resume.

he gave all the top fighters of the day a good fight

a man who rocked mcguigan in the 9th at the kings hall-juan laporte best chin by far IMO.

fought a who`s who of ATG feathers/130/135/140 and never even wobbled a fighter not often included in best chins but IMO along with hagler the 2 best chins of this 80`s/90`s/00 era.

yep went 1-1 v eubanks -snaeaky question by myself.

yep poor old proud kilimanjaro
man mountain but slow as treacle
Najib Daho...killed in a car crash was he not. I was standing in the dressing room once and he walked by with his ear almost torn off just after his fight. Strangest thing I've ever seen. He didnt seem too bothered about it!
Barry rocked Juan LaPorte literally in the last 10 seconds of that fight.
Juan Laporte is a great guy though.

i thought foster came last on the wright uk tour.

forgot about dodson

bingham was in good form leading up to the wright fight, but did not have the skill to land his left hook.
