If you watch some old bouts from the early '70s at the Fairfield Halls, Croydon, you'll see Mal sitting in the front row, watching and learning from the live action.

 

I put on some shows in the 80's and 90's, mainly subbing with Dale Martin, and later put one on with Brian Dixon All-Star promotions at the Elephant and Castle Leisure Centre, in London. 

 

I remember Brian sending meto Lewisham Hospital to pick up the posters and flyers from a charming lady whom I mistakenly (at the time) thought was Mal's other half.  It turned out she was his manager, this was around 1991.

 

I mentioned this to Mal at the reunion in 2011 and we had a good laugh about it.

 

A really nice genuine guy, played his part in the last golden years of the grapple game, and took some real stick from McManus and Rocco at the Royal Albert Hall if I remember rightly in the late 70's early 80's.

 

Looking forward to shaking your hand again on Aug 10 Mal.  All the best.
