Hi lads Geordie Sam here,
my late father in his infinite wisdom thought (wrongly) that one of his two sons (unfortunately me,clown) should become the first Geordie World Middleweight boxing champion (what could possibly go wrong?)

So here are my stats.

I won everyone but 19 of my 20 fights (read that again,carefully)

I was very kindly sponsored by local "gangster" Joe Tonks who ran a diner,for maximum exposure I had "eat at Joe's" on the SOLES of my boots.

I had carry handles sewn into my shorts to make it easier for my "entourage" to get me OUT of the ring after each fight.

My trainer said I lacked only one thing, ability.

So ended my "tilt" at being World middleweight "champeen", I took up knitting instead.

Geordie Sam.

I loved this, Sam. Smile Like Johnny, I avoid fighting. At 5'6" and 9 stone 2, this is obviously a very wise decision on my part. Laughing1

I used really love watching boxing but its changed drastically in the last 20 years. A lot more kick boxing which I am not into.

The 70's was a glorious decade for watching heavyweights, the 80's for all the divisions under, and it's been worthless since.
