By Per Ake Persson

One of Norway´s best amateurs of all time, Tore Magnussen, passed away last weekend at the age of 75. Magnussen won the Norwegian championship every year between 58 and65 fighting at lightweight, light welter and welter. In 65 he also won the Nordic championships and then turned pro compiling a 15-10-2 record until 1972 when he retired. The numbers don´t look very impressive but Tore was in tough almost every time with almost all of his big fights on the road.
Magnussen challenged then EBU champ and future World champ Pedro Carrasco in 1969 in front of 14,000 fans in Barcelona and was stopped in three and also fought the likes of Kid Tano, Miguel Velezquez, Olli Maeki and Lothar Abend.
