Mark Prince Coming Back to Make a Difference


Stories of boxers making a comeback to the ring after years in retirement and long past their primes, are as old as the sport of boxing. They often are melancholy tales of faded glory and lost youth that seemingly never end happily. At first glance, Mark Prince’s comeback last Friday (October 4 2013) at London’s famous York Hall, in Bethnal Green, is no different to so many other boxers of the past. Prince was a world-rated light heavyweight in the late 1990’s and his only career defeat came in a WBO world light-heavyweight title fight with the formidable Dariusz Michalczewski. That fight took place on September 19, 1998, after which, Prince fought once more fourteen months later, beating Kevin Mitchell in the first round, before hanging up his gloves due to a severe knee injury. Friday’s comeback fight would be the first time that Prince had stepped competitively into a boxing ring in almost fourteen years.  This and his age of forty-four, did not look like boding well for Prince in his comeback.  Fourteen years is a lifetime in a boxer’s career, and few boxers get a chance to live their athletic lives again.

PUNCHES FROM THE PAST

A Look Back at the Fighters and Fights of Yesterday


Dennis Andries…The Journeyman Who Became a Three-Time World Champion

By Peter Silkov

Boxing is one of the toughest of all physical sports, one where the participants need to be endowed with a range of physical attributes and talents. It is often overlooked how important mental strength is within boxing and how mental and spiritual determination can overcome physical shortcomings. The history of boxing is littered with the broken dreams of men who had the physical talents, but not the crucial mental and spiritual strength, to succeed in the hardest of sports. Often in boxing, it is the strongest of mind, rather than simply the strongest of body, which ultimately triumphs.                                
Dennis Andries was one such fighter, whose mental strength was the foundation of his tremendous success, in an extraordinary career, which saw him rise from a domestic journeyman who struggled to get fights, to a three-time world light-heavyweight champion. Despite the success and overcoming of more than his fair share of setbacks and rough times, during his career, Andries was to find that he would never gain the kind of recognition and affection with the fans, that some other fighters, who achieved far less…managed to gain. 

Andries was born in Guyana, on 5th November 1953, and had a tough childhood, when his parents relocated to Britain and then split up; he later described himself as being a ‘wild kid.’ Like many wild kids, before and after him, Andries found himself drawn into boxing, but at a later age than most, Andries was already 25 years old when he turned professional, in 1978, after a rudimentary amateur career.   Read More                                                                                                                                                                                              (photo from boxingrec.com)
