Who remembers the boxer Freddie Mills?

Joe Knight… Do you remember the boxing gloves and the Freddie Mills punch bag . The ones that when you hit it would bounce back up. It was about 4ft a blow up figure and in the bottom of the Base was sand so when you hit the figure, it would always upright it self He was found out side a night club in London in a car, shot.

Keith Blizard… Think I had a Freddie Mills boxing annual!

Lyn Humphrey… I had a Freddie Mills punch-ball. It was sprung, and fixed to a sort of plank that you stood on to keep the punch-ball rooted. Brown boxing gloves. The whole set lasted for years.

Mick Carlisle Savage… A true legend

Mike Wright… He was on 6-5 Special and if I recall ok, died in his car behind his night club,very dodgy.My Dad who did a bit of pro boxing loved him,thought he always did his best a real slugger, old skool.

Wendy Weaver… He died in a Citroen DS21. I was going to buy one and was offered his in a garage in Acton. It had all been fitted out inside but I didn’t fancy it. Bought another one instead

No Home Jerome… I knew you had a dark side Ms Weaver!

Wendy Weaver… Very dark
