I remember Joe Erskine because he meet Henry Cooper, George Chuvalo, Ingemar Johansson, Brian London etc. I hope I can buy a photo from Joe Erskine in a fighting pose from the 1950's and 1960's. Joe was very technical boxer, a slider and had a good left jab.

I send the best wishes to you Joe!

Joe Erskin was the British Heavyweight Champion. Surely that rates a mention?
