Sad to hear of the passing of ‘Blackpool Rock’, boxer Brian London, 87.
Always humorous, one of Brian’s favourite tales was that he frightened @MuhammadAli to death during their World Heavyweight title fight in 1966. I asked him how?

It’s with a heavy heart that we are announcing the death of a Blackpool legend (aged 87)
Former British and Commonwealth heavyweight title holder, Brian London, (The Blackpool Rock) was a professional boxer who’s most famous fight was with Mohammed Ali for the world title (6 Aug 1966).
He is also well known locally to encourage and inspire young boxers and even offer them free lessons in his home near Stanley Park.
He was also described by locals as a ‘true gentleman’.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this sad time

I remember Brian. Nearly 20 yrs ago he would bring his granddaughter to crèche playtime at the sports centre. I took my twin sons, one of whom was in a specialist walking frame. He was always very interested in it.
