Basilio five years on the trot, never realised that before, guess that is the dictionary definition of a value for money fighter, and since I finished a biography of him recently will plough into these tonight, cheers union.

Do you ever read anything that isn't either a boxing book or magazine (not including The Sporting Life)?

Mind the windows Tino.

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.

Have you ever seen Basilio, the only boxing book where less pictures would be better.

Laugh True, haven't seen any pictures of him when he was younger so don't know if he's naturally that good looking or the boxing did it.

I'm amazed Carmen's still alive (to my knowledge.) Some people are just made of steel.

Think you are correct JBW, La Motta is though, it was mentioned on here the other day he is the oldest living world champion, believe he is in his 90s now. Remarkable when one considers both of their fighting styles.
