            Halme was not much of a boxer but he did keep the sport "alive" in this country when there were few boxers around who could. He was an entertainer and a character who was always controversial. I imagine the heavy alcohol/drug abuse during his later years finally got to him.

              Ah, that's a shame. :conf3:

              Otherwise Halme was a waste of space, but he didn't have to go like that. Enpä voi muuta sanoo ku heippa sitten, Tony...
