Them's the breaks

Book published by Michael J Clarke with cover shown here.

For some years I felt rather left out because as I remember although my earlier fights before 1960 were quite timid through my character then ring-shy with no killer instinct as its known in boxing (or was).

However I certainly provided a lot of excitement during the year of 1960.

I was billed for the main support fight from the pick of Australia's Budding Champions seen in the Billings Section 16-12-1960, Cec Rogers and I provided the most thrilling fight of the night and it made headlines.

In that year I was awarded most improved fighter of the year. photo

Most of my 11 opponents in the same year were knocked down for counts once or more times during these bouts.

Many of my opponents are included in the publications however I missed out.

Them's the breaks

 

Books are amazingly well produced and a must have for all boxing enthusiasts.

Now I'm 66 and entitled to my opinion.

My opponents and I certainly gave the fans everything.
