Re: professional boxing
My dad Billy Dunn born Hebburn 1922 was a good amateur Boxer. He never told me much other than he only got beat once by a boxer in Sunderland called Savage. Dont suppose there are amateur boxing records anywhere.
I remember Banty's Nipper an ex Jarrow boxer. He was a mates uncle and visited their house in 1950s Windermere Cres regularly. We were told not to call him that as he didn't like the name.
