I went to the kaylor v Sibson fight at Wembley, there was as much fighting going on outside
the ring as there was in it !

Re: Alan Minter: RIP
What stuck in my mind with the Minter Hagler fight was at the end of it they had to leave the ring a bit sharpish as the bottles rained in from all sides.
Hagler was really bitter about that as he was a world champion without the ceremony.

R.I.P Alan Minter

I don’t think anything Alan Minter said could have upset Hagler any more than he already was. He had the needle a long time before him and Alan Minter were getting referees final instructions.

Hagler felt he should have had the Vito Antuofermo fight before Minter and he was treated poorly by the British press. So, he was already pissed off by the time of the fight.

A mate saw Alan Minter at a Boxing Evening and asked if Hagler had headbutted him. Minter smiled and said “no he never nutted me, he just beat me up”

Agreed, Herol was a great fighter. Had a very strange (but effective) method of swaying backwards, hands down, to avoid punches.
Until as you say he fought Julian Jackson.
Was there at Wembley the night he beat Kaylor in the mid 80s. Loved Kaylor but was outclassed that night.

Alan Minter, RIP

Graham was great. Boxed with his hands down a lot of the time. Which was great, until he caught one and was spark out before he hit the floor.

Can't say I was a fan as such, but good memories of way way better times with his fights coming into our living room on tv when I was growing up.

RIP.

I remember seeing Hagler dismantle Minter in that fight...even though I was quite young at the time it was the kind of thing you see on TV that remains etched on your mind forever afterwards.


Exactly this.

Without doubt THE most memorable fight ever for me as a 13 year old.

RIP Alan son, brave to the end and a great boxer

Midweek sport special with the boxing on. I was allowed to stay up to watch the Minter fights. Remember the shock when Hagler took him apart in three.

He was fantastic in that fight and propmtly vanished off the planet for a year afterwards. Kirkland Laing was ludicrously talented but his own worst enemy. Booze and weed are not compatible with a bosing career.
Remember a couple of fights when he was coming up the ranks against Colin Jones and he was bossing bossing them both until he punched Jones in the bollocks and annoyed him. You'd have have thought he would have learned after the first time...

Re: Alan Minter: RIP
I'm with Sold0. Leonard was an amazing boxer,his hand speed was ridiculous and he was so light on his feet.

Calling Ali a boxer dosnt sound enough,he transcended the sport and at his peak was possibly the most famous person on the planet.

I always got the impression that he could of finished him in round one if he wanted and was just drawing it out to make him suffer. It was fucking brutal.

How many other good boxers suffered the same fate?
