That's odd. I have 4-5 articles where he says he had 2 older brothers. Never mentioned another 4 kids.

Thanks for posting though.

I find that Loughran seems underrated around here at LHW and P4P............ I seem to have him a lot higher than most......... this was one of the slickest boxers of all time, he toyed with most of his opponents.... one of the greatest LHW's..... for instance, I think Billy Conn was awesome, but Conn wasn't as good as Tommy........ Loughran may even be top 3 at LHW.

Billy Conn was as good a light heavy as anyone.

Not because of Gibbons it was because of what he says about modern training.

Back when I fought, my style was similar in a lot of ways to Loughran's. Very sideways and fencing like.

just joking mate....... But I had a giggle when I saw that. I personally rate Tommy higher than Conn, but that's not to say Conn's not good, he did have it in him to beat any LHW on his day........ I think Loughran had a more dominant reign and that's my reason for my rating.
