    Fascinating one I thought that most boxing was suspended during the war years in Britain and there certainly seems to be no record of beltholders during this period

    I have looked too and came up with nothing. I've also forwarded this to LEBA to see if they can help.

    He won some kind of heavyweight competition at the end of the war. Maybe he was given a Lonsdale belt as a prize.

    That video does show an auction of a Lonsdale Belt and according to the dope sheet there was a boxer called Jack Smith present.

    Very intriguing...

    I was just about to post that boxrec link that antcull has posted that seem like the bloke but if what they say is true it seems that his record is far from complete boxing news possibly might have some issues from that era?

    I'll see what the LEBA can turn up. She will be very pleased. Thanks again!
