|Errol ‘Bomber’ Graham|
It could well still stand that Herol ‘Bomber’ Graham is the best British boxer never to win a version of a world title.
He then got a second shot at the world crown this time the vacant WBC version against the dangerous Julian Jackson in Benalmadena, Andalucía, Spain, November 1990. – Graham was boxing Jackson ears off. The Americans eyes were closing from the leather he was taking from the Brit. and the referee was close to stopping the fight. – Jackson could barely land a glove on the elusive Graham. But in the fourth he landed the one that counted and the one that saw Graham counted out.
After the loss to Jackson, Herol had three fights, winning one and losing two against again Sumbu Kalambay for the European belt and then to Frank Grant in a British title fight. – After a lifetime in boxing, he decided to call it a day and retired in Septemder 1992.
After leading on all the judges scorecards and outboxing the champion for most of the fight and even dropping Brewer twice in the fight, again it was the fists of fate that were written and in round ten, hurt Herol backed to the ropes and a flurry of big shots, saw referee Earl Morton jump in to stop the fight, ending ‘The Bombers’ dreams and his boxing career.
