There was a boxers reunion in Torquay in the late 1970's it was a big deal having the famous Terry Spinks appear and Terry stayed at my dads - Paul King-I remember meeting Terry what a lovely man.

Very sad to hear. I boxed for west ham during the 1960's ( 1962-1967) I remember meeting him when he came to a boxing tournaments at west ham. I remember seeing his gloves on the wall then and recently ( 10 years ago) when i visited the club with young son.

I remember telling my son about Terry boxing for the club, and winning the gold medal. I was

I have lived in Australia since 1973 ( I visit to the east end every few years) but i always interested in boxing news etc from the UK.

I am so proud to boxed for such a fantastic club such as west ham knowing that a true legend in Terry Spinks both as boxer and man once boxed for them.

If there anything i can do please let me know.

RIP TEL True East End legend

Thanks
