Joe ErskineHeavyweight boxer.
Connection: Born in Cardiff.
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 is my great uncle. I should have a photo of him in a fighting pose.
I am Joe's son also named Joe. If anyone wants more info please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Joe Erskin was the British Heavyweight Champion. Surely that rates a mention?
