Not a very good quality clip, but I'd never seen the guy before. As some of you will know, apparently Roy Shaw and Lenny McLean avoided this guy.

He was a nobody.

Got the mans book, I hold him in higher regard than Lenny and Shaw and yes it is reported they both ducked him

A lot of the people he fought still would have been tough guys though. Who knows, maybe Mclean and Shaw did dodge him. It seems unlikely, but you never know.

A prime Bartley would beat both Shaw and Mclean imo. Shanus is only hating on Bartley because I "bum" him, I give my props to both shaw and mclean, but Bartley was from what I've heard a monster, and that vid shows you even at 51 he could ****ing bang

yes yes, "King of the Gypsies" by Bartley Gorman with Peter Walsh - one of the best books i have EVER read , an utterly exceptional man in and out of the ring /car park/pub :boxing:

yes hedfoniqs, I've ready his book Mcleans and Roy Shaws and his was far and away the best of the three, I actually felt sad when I read at the end he passed away

i shed a tear myself mate , never one for weapons despite being attacked with guns/ iron bars /knives - he was strictly one on one , the man had a big heart and big balls . . and like his daughter said , he managed to achieve what he did cos of the proud love he had inside him , he werent full of hate ; )

I wish he did get a shot at Hughie Burton as a young man, from what I read they were the two top men of their respective times

Lenny would have slapped him about like the red headed step child Bartley was.
