Many will remember that great amateur heavyweight,Denis Mcnamara who has passed away aged 79.

Dennis held the British,English and Police titles many times between 1960 and 1975.In the 1965 World Championships at Belle Vue,Manchester  he was only beaten by the eventual silver and bronze medal winners..

In the Tokyo Olympics he beat  a Japanese,the only holder of a Judo eighth Dan at that time,in three minutes.
