Just heard Henry died. By all accounts a thoroughly bloody decent chap, and one of Britain's best loved sportsmen.

Not a steroid or a whiff of scandal in sight.

RIP

I know what you mean, Harry.

Sad news.

If 42 is the answer, the question is if 24 looks in the mirror, who does she see?

Indeed. A gent. A top-class boxer.

Cut gloves by Angelo Dundee and a litany of cut eyes cost him a world title.

Not that he needs endorsing but I met him several times.

It was years ago, I hardly remember. I trained as a journalist on the Wembley News & Observer and was Sports Editor for a while. Henry had this greengrocers down the road - and was always more than happy to give a story to his local paper.

I also stepped into the ring with Billy Walker. But he hit me so I ran.. It was a Daily Sketch promo..





RIP
