We had a special visitor in the gym tonight in Ernie Lofthouse.
He was a top amateur boxer in his day having well over 200 fights. He was a friend of my old coach Keith Tate, he used to knock about in the gym and advise us all.
He’s kept in touch with me over the years with the odd phone call but today he randomly turned up to the Training Cave for the first time to see our lot train.
This guy means a lot to me. A very hard but kind man.
