Knew Alan well. Proper piss head who managed to give up the booze in later years only to fall back on it again.

Tremendous mover. Once spoke to him about the Hagler fight and asked him why he said hed never let a black b@stard bear him, his reply was that he was told to say that to sell more tickets.

Brilliant pro record. Think he won Bronze in Olympics too.

RIP

The ironic thing is, is after saying that Hacker absolutely took him to school... One of the purest, one sided boxing displays I've ever seen.

He was still a great fighter though and he struggled badly with alcohol problems in his later life. Indeed he was barred from many pubs in the area I now live in Reigate. RIP

 


Don't waste your time with jealousy. Sometimes your ahead, sometimes your behind, the race is long. But in the end it's only with yourself!!

A bit harsh on Minter that.

Hagler was another level to Minter but nevertheless while he lost the opening rounds Minter was competitive in there and connected on Hagler quite often...it was a fierce fight and Minter never stopped throwing back. Also to be fair to Minter he never went down and was stopped on cuts.

Proper fighter. Sad loss. If my memory is right he managed the Adelaide Pub in Penge high street. Drank in there a bit back in the day RIP

Very sad.
I am also around Reigate and used to see him a lot around the town.
When not in his cups he was a humorous and genuine guy.
Terrible shame how addictions work - but what a Boxer!

Yeah maybe I was a bit harsh.. Been many years since I watched that fight. I stand corrected.

I tip my hat, takes a man to say that.

If there is a beyond I hope Minter has found some peace.
