Boxing At The ExCel Arena
On Friday, I went to the ExCel Arena to see some boxing.
It was the first time, I’d seen amateur boxing, or in fact any type of boxing live. One vivid memory at about the age of about eight was seeing the UK, whitewash the United States, ten-nil on the television one evening. In that match, Billy Walker knocked-out the giant Cornelius Perry with one punch. The story is in Billy’s Wikipedia entry.
The last few pictures show Freddie Evans progressing to the last eight.
