brother breaks collar bone while cycling
16th Feb 2007
Tony, Young Victor's youngest brother was run into by one of
his cycling friends during his exercising this morning at the
Black Rock area in Beach Road, he was taken to the Austin
hospital for closer examination and was found to have a broken
collar bone and two broken ribs.
He is expects to be released later today.
Tony gets quite involved with his cycling and has performed
quite well in the yearly Round the Bay tournament and at 60
years old leaves a lot of his opponents behind.
He is known to be the best at the finishing stages when he
excels and shows up with the leaders.
Tony Aquilina unbeaten in 5 fights as an amateur was unlucky in having fought an experienced John
Shocker Myles in his first pro fight to lose on points back in
22nd Nov 1969.
He was unlucky to lose a points decision to Terry Tears later
in March 1970.
Tony was training fighters at the Collingwood Town Hall when
the gym was passed to him by his former trainer Leo Cole.

Tony loves cycling these days and has a professional bicycle, his comment to his brother whom on this issue is always
telling him that he reminds him of the turkey asking for an early Xmas
was: I can't wait to get back on my bike.
Tony just loves riding.
