“… So we move indoors for the work on shoot and among set ups that take me back to school and PT days, when boxing was compulsory, or it was made out that way. If you fought in the ring you gained a point for your house. And eventually added up to the winning of the cock house at the end of term; a most prestigious reward,” he shared.

“In Sherwood I lost in the boxing tournaments. But I won a cup for being the pluckiest loser. A plucky loser was an acknowledgment for putting up a fight which I almost won, despite the fact that I was up against one that was stronger. My height would go against me in the countdowns for which category I belonged.

“So even though my weight was for a lower category, my height used to put me in a higher weight and better and stronger opponents. They warned me to withdraw, for they feared physical damage to me. But my PT instructor disagreed and I fought,” he added.
