yet another sporting great that grew up watching leaves us Alan Minter RIP  

Always enjoyed watching his bouts and also outside the ring And in retirement he was interesting to listen to , seemed a genuine bloke .

To right seen herol Graham in an exhibition in my local workin men's club tied his hands behind his back any body cud get in the ring with him no body could put a glove on him 👌

I remember his fights well. It was a golden period for British boxing when we had a lot of very good boxers across nearly all the weights.

Don't know how true it is but I once heard that while Minter was training for the Hagler fight the camp needed another sparring partner, they were sent a kid from Sheffield, 

In no time they sent him back asking for a fighter that Minter could actually hit lol, they'd sent Herol Graham

Surprised no one has mentioned that the night he lost in three rounds to Hagler , the Minter supporters rioted. They were a disgrace.

Minter and his camp used  a race element to try to get under Marvelous Marv's skin before the fight. It didn't work and Minter was destroyed by a very riled Hagler.

From a pure boxing point of view ,  you can't beat a brick wall by smashing it down especially if you cut so easy ..

Sugar Ray  beat Hagler easy

IMO

Why are you surprised! He didn't riot he boxed, show some respect.

I had a few mates who went over to Vegas when he won the world title, what a trip that would have been. Poor old Minter, I never heard he was poorly.

 

Ken Buchanan is poorly as well.
