I'm a bit of a hothead and think I may have negged you for some trifling matter on another thread, which I now regret, so this is just an apology and hope there are no hard feelings. - It's Ovah Cheers for the green.

It is a section in a book called the Memoirs of Gunboat Smith or something similar, it is one of the great reads in all boxing literature, he takes you through his world. From what I know of him was that he said himself that he was average in many areas of the game, but he was tough and one of the all-time hitters, I think he could have knocked out many with any type of glove. I'll have to go back and read it again, I'll post again on him then,....... PS, that film of Robbo you have there, proves his greatness.
