Default Whatever happened to Jeff Harding?

Watching this three fights with Dennis Andries, great battles.

He seems to have disappeared.

Harding shouldn't have to ask... It'd be a pleasure to buy him the first beer. Wouldn't stick around for too many more though.

But you see the dilemma? Is it up to me to take a stand in a case like this?

I understand... yet, impossible for myself to suggest a perfect option.
The 'dilemma' lies within Harding and other fallen warriors. Is Harding the kind of bloke to listen to anyone, pick up a shovel and take home $800/week?????

Probably not mate, you dont TKO12 a prime Andries without being a stubborn bastard with a gutful of mongrel.
Just like lester said in his bio, The things that make you a good boxer work against you later in life.

Good stuff..

perhaps a 're-adjustment to normal life' is the determining factor..??

What goes UP.. must come DOWN.

I remember him turning up to an amateur fight I had at Tweed Heads (about 1996), he was blind drunk and full of bad manners, he walked up ringside and abused the ref, the ref stopped the fight momentarily and told him to pull his head in or wait till the bout was over and he would take him outside and sort him out. Then a couple of people managed to talk him out of there, the ref was about 60 at the time and never looked at all bothered he was real calm and confident, his name was Ethol McQueen (I think) my old man used to rave about how good an amateur he was.

Anyway apparently after leaving the fights the hitman was ko'd by a local fisherman who headbutted him in a pub just up the road.
