    Deid - middleweight champion scrapper

    Alan Minter, British, European, and very briefly WBC/WBA middleweight boxing title-holder (Hagler destroyed him to claim the world title), aged 69. When our first-born entered the ring of life 35 years ago after a bruising forceps delivery, my response to the question, "Fit dis the child look like?" was "Alan Minter".

    None of us are mortals we have our time with and when it comes I hope to go through the gates of heaven . Still have a fair bit of work to do.

    Mind you maybe in hell they have a better time who knows .

    I was at Ibrox on 11 May 1991. Hell on earth.

    Otherwise, you are correct. Fairy stories about imaginary pals in the sky.

    Was that the fight when the beer cans and bottles came flying into the ring?

    Hagler was brutal, loved him as a fighter.

    Memories from my childhood, RIP
