Recent and old important memorable
days for Victor in the game of Boxing
"HOWEVER NEVER A CHAMPION"
This part of the website only concentrates on
Victor and other friends included in his activities.
18th June 2010: Dear friends keeping
this section up to date has been an impossibility for me.
Boxing and other issues of life was
mainly to blame, I will make an effort in the coming days to keep
you updated about whatever was important to me.
I apologize for not looking after this
website and this topic. This is due to loss of interest by me and
finding time, I have partially turned my interests to the stock
market, something I have unsuccessfully done in the past.
The loss of interest is mainly because
of negative reaction by some in the boxing fraternity and me being
from a much earlier period than today's living fight followers.
I have been getting myself fit by
training at Frank Bianco's gym at Lower Templestowe displaying some
old fashioned real boxing training.
This is at the very end of Swanston
Street off Templestowe Road, Lower Templestowe. We get there at
about 5:00 pm.
Young Victor's near loss of son Paul - This usually happens to
other people and we just can't imagine it happening to us.
Koori Radio Interview:
Personal comment: 28th. April 2008.
I was invited for an interview on Koori radio station
to comment of the Bob Rose Cup night at Malvern last
Thursday, myself and some of the old boxers on our time.
Well as I am inexperienced at these things I tried to
mend things in the Aussie Boxing Forum I frequent and it went like
I called the thread: "What a mouth"
Oh my God!!
I listened to what Lynette recorded from this and I
couldn't believe how long I rattled on for, something like
I also noticed that I was on a train without stops, poor
announcer Brad must have got an easy night as he didn't
have time to talk.
I am sure it didn't quite go the way the announcer Brad
intended but my inexperience must'have been to blame.
I hope I don't get used to it and grab Howard Lee's
microphone at the next fight meeting and perform.
Anyway all in all, its inexperience I suppose.
You were fantastic on our show on Monday and myself Brad
and Claude are big fans.
Remember a guest can never talk too much particularly with
the amount of stories and memories you have.
We will definitely do round 2 later in the year.

Award 2007 to YV. A very touching
expression on Bryan.
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.
YV thanks the Victorian Boxing
Trainers League and appreciates the nice gesture by all
that form the committee.
Naming someone a Champion is no insult especially when
done as a gesture, I suppose!
by Young Victor:
In the recent World of Boxing
journal this blocked photo appeared and has possibly
turned up a few noses going by some of the feelings I am
getting from some forum armchair comment makers.
I have felt I needed to comment on
it on my own website to get the records straight.
This was done by my very nice and
respected friend Ray Wheatley (editor of World of Boxing
Journal) whom I recognize as one of the most knowledgeable men in
Ray has done this as a gift in
return for my advertising his paper on my website for some
years now of my own accord.
When Ray asked me what I wanted on
it I decided to leave it up to him to put something that
would advertise my YoungVictorBoxing website.
He did this and good or bad I like
it, I am prepared to back up anything Ray says and also
prove him right.
You can see Ray's advert for his
journal just here to the left, click on his link and make
sure you place an order for his paper which comes out once
a month and is full of AUSSIE BOXING he even takes orders
by email on line right from here on Young Victor Boxing
and sent anywhere.
Thanks Ray with your 50 years in
boxing and responsibilities, in my eyes you are the
Recent brief intro on KOboxing TV
show by Peter Maniatis

of YV's old press clippings.
As seen in World of
Boxing magazine Oct 2006
do thank the World of Boxing for placing this photo in their magazine as I
was very much in love with the great Aussie champion George Bracken during our time,
Barry, a one time world champion is now a very good friend of mine, also a
very nice guy, same goes for Brian Young.
