Letters: Seeking an old friend

British resident seeking information on old boxing pal

I read an article which was sent to me by a friend in Australia about Mr. Tony Brogan whom I used to appear on the same Amateur Boxing bills in Devon in the U.K. back in the 1960. In fact, we both appeared in an exhibition bout which was two weeks before Tony won the A.B.A. Heavyweight championship at Wembley in London.

I would dearly love to contact him via e-mail therefore would be very grateful if you could possibly send me his e-mail address of course, with his permission, failing that would it be possible for you to pass on my e-mail address to him, (bph4477@aol.com)which I would be grateful for.

Yours in anticipation.
