1. DICK McTAGGART (1956) Regarded by many as Britain’s best-ever amateur boxer, McTaggart had to overcome the stiffest of competition to claim the Val Barker Trophy, as the legendary Laszlo Papp was one of his fellow gold medal winners. 2. NINO BENVENUTI (1960) After being presented with the Val Barker Trophy, Italian idol Benvenuti went on to carve out a Hall of Fame career as a professional. One of the boxers that he pipped to the award was a certain Cassius Clay. 3. TEOFILO STEVENSON (1972) Arguably the greatest amateur boxer of all time, Cuban colossus Stevenson secured a hat-trick of Olympic golds from 1972 to 1980. During the Games in which he won the Val Barker Trophy, he stopped all of his opponents. 4. HOWARD DAVIS JNR (1976) A member of a star-studded US team, Davis…

Previewing the best upcoming fights around the world OUTSTANDING GOOD FAIR DISAPPOINTING RUBBISH The star ratings indicate how well the writer believes the fighters match up, the fight(s)’ contextual significance, and how good the fight(s) will be MAIN EVENT UNDERCARD AS the No. 7 heavyweight contender in the world, Joe Joyce is firmly in the mix for fights at the elite end of the division. His sights are particularly set on the winner of the Anthony Joshua-Oleksandr Usyk contest, though the plan, assuming Joshua wins, is for “AJ” to take on Tyson Fury afterwards, so long as Fury defeats Deontay Wilder in their rescheduled trilogy bout. So for the time being, Joyce must ignore these ifs and buts and simply concentrate on maintaining his lofty position in the rankings – a position that Carlos Takam wants to take from him. This…

OUTSTANDING GOOD FAIR RUBBISH Reporters’ star ratings for main events and undercards are based on in-ring entertainment, competitiveness and whether overall expectation was met SAN ANTONIO, TX JULY 17 MAIN EVENT UNDERCARD ON the few (all too few) occasions that boxing manages to carve out for itself some measure of respectability, all it takes for it to revert to its usual sordid form, it seems, are a few hare-brained strokes of a judge’s pen. The name Nelson Vazquez may not yet trigger a visceral reaction in boxing fans, the way that mentioning either Adalaide Byrd or CJ Ross is known to cause ulcers and migraines – but the veteran boxing judge of nearly 1,000 bouts from Puerto Rico might have secured a place in the sport’s Hall of Shame with his most recent tally, a mind-boggling distortion of empirical fact. Saturday…

who are you tipping to win gold at the olympic games?

Lewis Richardson GB Boxing have a special team in Tokyo. I believe any one of them could medal, but if I had to pick one to win gold it would be Pat McCormack. What a story it would be for Frazer Clarke though. Oleksandr Khyzhniak and the Russia’s Albert Batyrgaziev are my other tips for gold. But come on Team GB! Tony Jeffries I think the McCormack brothers are some of the most talented fighters GB has seen in a long time and have got a great chance of gold, as well as big Frazer Clarke. Charlie Sims Pat McCormack, Frazer Clarke and Peter McGrail. All have been outstanding through qualifiers and major tournaments in the build up. I can see Ben Whittaker has the talent and Galal Yafai has the experience to knock on…
