    Jimmy McLarnin and Pop Foster. Pretty sure Foster left everything he had to McLarnin when he died, even though Jimmy had used his money wisely and was never short of a quid or two in retirement.

    Actually, Jimmy had made some bad investments and was financially strapped when Foster died in 1956. Foster's inheritance money allowed him to live comfortably ever after.

    Billy Petrolle and Jack Hurley -- their relationship was an a par with that of McLarnin and Foster.

    Wasn't Dundee in Jimmy Ellis corner when he fought Ali?
