R.I.P Lionel Rose

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by MVrog, May 8, 2011.

  1. Lionel was the first Aboriginal Man, to win a World Championship in The sport of Boxing.

    He left us today, after a period of Ill Health.

    Rest in Peace, Lionel.
  2. Sad to hear Rog, I met him once when I was a kid. He was dating a family friend's daughter. I was too young at the time to realise how significant a man he was. Looking back now it must have been around the time of the Ruben Olivares fight, 1969/70

    Rest in Peace.
  3. RIP Lionel.
  4. State Funeral is in order.
  5. R.I.P. Lionel. A sad weekend, lost two greats. R.I.P. Seve as well
  6. now he won't have to use the Royal Telephone; he can talk direct

    RIP a true champion
