A great local boxer.
 
  A grateful German gentleman had eventually found his man. (I Hope the print is clearly enough to read).

I used to work with Billy down Victoria colliery and he told me that the world boxing champion Hogan Kid Bassey use to take him from Wigan to liverpool to spar with him in preparation for a contest

I remember Hogan “Kid” Bassey as a sensational world champion so that’s quite a tribute to Billy, in my opinion.

Fine praise indeed from gentleman Gerd. Billy must have been very good at the noble art.
