HAROLD KNIGHT is, like many other people in the boxing fraternity, saddened at the passing of former super-featherweight champ Rocky Lockridge, who died yesterday following complications relating to a stroke. Rocky, just 60, was a fine fighter and it was in his final world title victory that he won a tough and exciting 15-round decision over Knight.

For Knight, retirement followed soon after suffering his one and only loss, as he unfortunately failed a bran scan as some abnormalities were found. Today, Knight – who of course went on to co-train Lennox Lewis for around 13 years – is proud of his effort against Lockridge and he is also mourning the loss of his old adversary.

Here, Harold speaks with Boxing News:
