The Ebony Kid has passed away following treatment for cancer. He was trained and wrestled for Cyril Knowles and other northern independent promoters in the 1970s. He later worked for Joint Promotions under Max Crabtree, using the name Al Diamond. We last met up with The Ebony Kid at Leeds in 2011

His name was Ernie Bulman. There's a short piece on him in the Wrestling Heritage A-Z.
