Amateur Boxing Tournament 1953
A grand coronation tournament
By Owen Welch
I took part in this tournament at the Barclay School Stevenage on Friday 5th June 1953.
If my memory serves me right it was a cold wet evening and I was first on with no chance to warm up, and losing points. My opponent was in the same prediciment, I might add . As a consolation, I was presented with a set of Coronation cake forks, which I still have.
