Absloute Great, you have done yourselves proud on this one, thank you very much!!!

 

England's World Middleweight Champion Terry Downes, who also defeated the great Sugar Ray Robinson on two occasions is a possibility? The two men would go great together!!!

 

Or Carmen Basilio or Gene Fullmer, both from the same era!!

 

Thanks again Collectomania!!

Depends what your idea of 'better' is .. you could say ALL guests would be better at LFCC or EMS depending on how you're looking at it?

 

Plus they have to work with who's available when, and MK tends to have more sports guests than the other events do.

I would think that would be okay. Sporting items cost more than an ordinary 10"x8" image though - £35 instead of £25, in this case.
