Repton Amateur Boxing Club (1974)

40 Years ago today I went to the York Hall with my mate Brooksie. Repton Amateur Boxing Club were holding a boxing tournament. Brooksie boxed for Repton at the time. There are a couple of his relatives on the card.

Also on the card:

Dave ‘Boy’ Green – he went professional the same year. Dave “Boy” Green was British welterweight boxing champion from 1976.

Ray Winstone (Beowulf, Sexy Beast, etc…) is also on the card.

Of Ray Winstone, WIKI says: At the age of 12, Winstone joined the famous Repton Amateur Boxing Club and, over the next 10 years, won 80 out of 88 bouts. At welterweight, he was London schoolboy champion on three occasions, fighting twice for England. The experience gave him a perspective on his later career: “If you can get in a ring with 2,000 people watching and be smacked around by another guy, then walking onstage isn’t hard.”
