Your in the Midlands?One of the local lads here in the midlands Howard Clarke fought Fernando Vargas for the world title.
He was 26-10-2 when he got his surprise title shot...He then decided to become a fulltime journeyman won only one fight after that a win over Ross Minter. He finished with a record of 27-79-2 draws.
Had to retire because tragically he got early onset dementia. Being a journeyman can be a hazardous to the health unless he is a very good spoiler and knows how to avoid to many shots to the head.
I remember when they muted with the idea of a prizefighter for the Journeyman. Wish they did.I was at a York Hall show one night, years and on the undercard were two proper journeymen matched against each other. In this fight though they weren't fighting as journeymen, they were fighting as two very skilled boxers, and they put on a cracking show.
Seeing a true journeyman giving tasty prospects a few rounds is not an accurate reflection of what they can do.
Yeah its a shame that never came off. Would have been good to see the well known journeymen battle it out for a title.I remember when they muted with the idea of a prizefighter for the Journeyman. Wish they did.
Not one opponent had a winning record. Guess his plan is to pad a record and get a big fight / pay day down the line.
