* He didnt aim for the head or body. He'd normally go for your soul

* When he hit Muhammed Ali he shook his kinfolk back in Africa

* Earnies favourite form of entertainment was watching Larry Holmes do the chicken dance

* He didnt practice with a punchbag. Why bother when you can just use Ken Norton instead

* Does anyone remember Earnie Shavers vs Jimmy Ellis? Jimmy Ellis doesnt

Agreed Soldier, met him at the airport on way to Hatton Mayweather, genuinely nice bloke, chatted friendly as you could hope for absolutely ages. Have not spoken to anyone who has met Shavers with a bad word to say about him

Is he still there? Crikey, he was there about 10 years ago when I still lived in Chester. He was a cracking bloke and I had a similar experience to you Soldier, my mates were off chatting the ladies up whilst I spent a good hour talking into the ear of a huge black bloke. Took me ages to persuade my mates that he was famous.

Mind the windows Tino.

Location : There are fewer more distressing sights than that of an Englishman in a baseball cap. And we'll die in the class we were born, well that's a class of our own my love. A class of our own my love. Did you see the stylish kids in the riot, cos mine beat me up then set the night on fire. Wombles bleed, truncheons and shields, you know I cherish you my love. Oh how I cherish Julius my love.

My cousin who is well known for tall tales said he met Shavers on a weekend out in Liverpool.

Feel a bit silly not believing him now.
