REG UNDY BEST RINGSIDE PERSONALITY AWARD

2007 PROFESSIONAL BOXING AWARDS PRESENTATION

won by Young Victor

THE HANK STANLEY BOXING AWARDS in the name of Reg Undy.

Today 16th December 2007 Young Victor was awarded with a trophy that had the  meaning unknown to him.

THE HANK STANLEY VICTORIAN BOXING AWARDS 2007 was resurrected by Keith Ellis with the help of Damian Membrey to keep alive a very old tradition as Hank has been ill of late.

 

Damian Membrey kindly placed the trophy in his father's hands to do the presentation.

(A very touching expression on Bryan.)

This was a thoughtful gesture by a loving son to his famous father knowing very well of the friendly relations his dad has with me.
I have not felt as close to boxing and people in it as what I did at this presentation in 44 years.
As you will see when the video is up and running on my site YVB, shear proof of how nice a man can be to another is evident in this footage.
I have had some people like me before but Bryan Membrey is something special.
Damian is very fortunate of having a father with so much knowledge in boxing and its connections.
Bryan is writing a book which portrays this wide web of great people he has known which to us are legends and celebrities.
A special thank you Bryan, not for the trophy as the panel did that but for you being such a nice man's man.

Reg Undy

Reg Undy was a "Ringside Personality" that was larger than life, a promoter, a punter, a bookmaker and a very generous bloke.
He is remembered walking around ringside calling odds and taking bets...

That type of activity doesn't happen now or not as overtly.
He features quite a bit in Lester's book ?????. He promoted a couple of Lester's fights and reportedly lost a lot on the Ellis v Michael fight!!!

Lester says in his book that as a 17 year old amateur he asked Reg for sponsorship and "Ringside Reg" helped out with some boots and cash...from then on Lester and Reg were inseparable.

More will be added here about Reg Undy and is being researched now and will be made available when enough has been compiled.

There is some incomplete record of Reg on Boxrec and you can see this by the following link. http://www.boxrec.com/list_shows.php?human_id=415500&cat=promoter
