This Battersea man is best known for his valiant ninth-round 1955 world title loss to Rocky Marciano, but before that he had notched some good wins in the USA.

  1. BRUCE WOODCOCK

Like so many British heavies, this Yorkshireman fell short at world level, but he was good enough to round up national, Empire and European crowns in the late 1940s.

  1. JOE BUGNER

Built superbly but without a devastating punch, Joe nevertheless went the distance with Muhammad Ali (twice) and Joe Frazier at his peak.

  1. TOMMY FARR
