“It’s a job though, finding work is not easy these days.’

Vic came to the bar and asked what he was doing and Alan introduced him to Bethany and Wendy; he told him that they were going to the Tux straight after the boxing.’

“Christ it didn’t take you long did it.’

“Well, you know me mate said Alan as the girls went on to serve other customers.’

You missed a good fight there. It was a second round knockout.’

“It will be two falls and a submission if we get these birds back to their student accommodation.’

“Yor a dorty bugger Alan Owen, no bloody woman is safe when you’re around.’

“You’re only young once mate.’

Vic carried the tray back to the front then handed Willick and the rest their drinks.’

They sat through the next four bouts then waited for Michael to enter the ring.

The looked as some lights came on and Steve Miller’s band belted out “Abracadabra.’

Michael shuffled to the ring wearing a blue dressing gown with a white trim it was embroidered with Magic Mickey Clements on the back he bounced up the steps then climbed into the ring and shuffled about and threw some punches. He looked totally business like as he waited for his opponent.

The music changed to “Hot chocolate’s You Sexy Thing” as the black colossus that was Delray William’s made his way to the ring wearing a silver dressing gown with a black trim.’ He walked casually with his corner man and coach Brendan Ingle and Jimmy Tibb’s his cut man. The local MC Norman Close waited until William’s was in the ring before making the announcement.

“Ladies and gentlemen we come to the main event of the evening. Twelve rounds of boxing at light heavyweight. This is a British title eliminator. In your blue corner boxing out of Newcastle is MAGIC Mickey Clements.’ A massive cheer went up from the crowd. Mickey weighed in at 175 pounds he has a professional record of fifteen fights, fifteen wins; thirteen by way of knock out.’  

His opponent from Sheffield weighed in at 172 pounds he has a professional record of seventeen fights seventeen wins; six by way of knockout. He is the BLACK COLOSSUS, Delray Williams.’

The fans who had travelled down cheered but there were mostly boo’s from the Newcastle based fans. Norman Fawcett removed Mickey’s dressing gown his muscular frame glistened with rubbing oil. He gave him a drink to rinse out his mouth before putting in his mouth piece. In the other corner Brendan Ingle had done the same and was giving final instructions to his fighter.

The referee was Brian Steele from London checked them over before calling them together.’

You have both received your instructions in the dressing room. Break clean when I tell you and keep your punches up touch gloves and come out fighting.
