DOES ANYONE KNOW EX-BOXER PETER KING?
« on: 01:35:06, 13/10/06 »
Iím going back to the early 1950s when Peter King was a good welterweight boxer, but I believe was thwarted in his bid to become British Champion by the BBB of C. I worked with him when he was an amateur just turning pro, and would like to meet him again just for old timeís sake. If heís still alive, and you know him or know where I can find him, Iíd be grateful for any information. My thanks in anticipation.

I know nothing about boxing, but a friend of mine was looking up some boxer friend of an elderly uncle or something and there was an organisation Boxing History, with a website boxinghistory.org.uk who had quite a lot of information.  I think I've remembered it right - it struck me at the time as very "does what it says on the tin".  I'm pretty certain they'd be able to tell you if he was still alive and in the UK.  Best of luck!  :)
It's nice to be important, but it's also important to be nice.

A lot of the boxing confraternity used to meet in the Crown and Cushion, (known as the Muckies or Muckmen). at the bottom of Corporation St. Near Angel Meadow. But it was demolished for the new ring rd. So I presume they've moved to another pub.

Jim,  I had a pm from one of our members on here who said Peter King was related to him, he wanted to get in touch with peterw (who would be in his 80s now) 
I told him the name of the only person I knew who was in touch with him - on another forum -  he has joined so he can pm her O0

Hello,


I know this is a really late reply but I have just been speaking with Peter King the boxers Grandson. We happened to Google him and this feed came up. Sadly he passed away in 2001 but if you would like to speak to his family they would be happy to.
