Lisburn boxers
« on: January 20, 2018, 10:08:14 AM »

There were hundreds of professional boxers from Lisburn from the early  1900s right up to the era of  the late Sammy Lockard. I'll mention just a few: Kenny Coates, Bill Adams (1908); R Alexander, Billy Andrews, Jim Bloomfield, real name Kenneth Bell; Jackie Burns (1934); Jim (Isaac) Keery. The list goes on and on. Most, but not all, of the Lisburn fighters from the past are deceased, as are their next-of-kin. But if anyone knows any former Lisburn boxers, or even a relative, who are still with us, I would be grateful for that information.

Many thanks.
