After Ol’ Blue Eyes crooned to the swooning masses, but before Johnny Cash unleashed his melodious murder ballads onto his legions of faithful followers in Worcester—Tony Sibson among them, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden stopped through town on their 1982 co-headlining tour, Van Halen set up shop for a three-night stand that October—as did the J. Geils Band on New Year’s Eve and the first two days of 1983, and other acts as diverse as Crosby, Stills & Nash, Aerosmith, Billy Joel, the Charlie Daniels Band, The Who, and KISS all tried their best to blow the roof off the Centrum.

It was a trio of head-spinning jabs that did it, punches akin to ramming someone in the face with a ring post— shots that stunned Sibson, tore open his left eye and, with it, the dressing over his deepest misgivings.

Griffith: “Experience, very knowledgeable, over the years he’d been a pro and what he did in boxing. Even when I thought I had him, he was able to maneuver out of it.”

He Who Dares: The night Pete Rademacher attempted to become world heavyweight champion on his professional debut

Over the years, Sibson continued to prove himself as a formidable opponent, facing some of the best middleweights of his era. His punching power and ability to withstand punishment made him a fan-favorite and a tough challenge for anyone stepping into the ring with him. He’ll fight [Bobby] Czyz, he’ll fight Mustafa Hamsho,” said the pugnacious Duff, a familiar smugness creeping across his face. “We will take the best opponent for the best payday that’s going.” Marvin responded to Merchant’s insistence that his status among the greats was a matter for others to determine by professing, “I feel I’m getting better all the time with every fight, and when I’m finished with this game that’s the way I want to go down in history.” The Hearns fight is remembered as one of the greatest of all time, as the principals exchanged murderous punches at a frenetic pace from the opening bell. Hagler sustained a deep cut to his forehead but continued to press Hearns until finally hammering his adversary to the canvas at 1:52 of the third round. Hector Camacho vs Edwin Rosario : The fight that changed “Macho” Camacho’s career forever. Defending his lightweight title at Madison Square Garden, Camacho found himself taking serious punishment for the first time in his career as the heavy-handed Rosario landed big shots in rounds five and eleven to make it a close fight. Camacho got the decision but lost something else: his heart.

My heart is broken now that he’s gone. I was in a daze for a couple of days after I heard the news. John H Stracey sent me a text message in the middle of the night telling me Marvin had gone and when I read it I thought: “What? This can’t be true.” I couldn’t believe what I was reading. I wanted to ring someone to see if it was true, but it was too early. I just sat there in bed, feeling bewildered. Marvin didn’t have any history of being ill and then he was gone. I messaged (Hagler’s wife) Kay after I heard the news. I didn’t want to ring her, but wanted her to know how upset I was and that I was thinking of her. Born in Gary, Indiana, Lee was a six-foot-two switch-hitting nightmare. Trained by Ray Leonard’s former coach, Dave Jacobs, the talented twenty-three-year-old went 196-6 as an amateur and was now 19-1-1 (19 KOs) in the pros. A church-going former Boy Scout, Lee had been a whipping boy for the neighborhood goons growing up. After learning to fight to relieve his older sisters from bodyguard duties, even top-rated middleweights knew to leave him well alone. Every time Marvin was in England I would get a phone call from him saying: “Come and see me Tone, let’s meet up”. I always did, and he was always such great company.

Duran: I would say Roberto Duran was very experienced, plus he was a three-time world champion when I fought him. I gave him the opportunity to win a fourth, which didn’t happen (laughs). Word started to get around that Sibson had been curiously abstaining from sparring, at least since touching down in Massachusetts if not before. “I seldom spar too close to a fight anyway,” Tony said dismissively at the time. “How can I beat up my sparring partners and then go take showers with them?” These self-effacing remarks were consistent with Sibson’s laissez faire demeanor but raised eyebrows nevertheless, and the concern was warranted as Tony would admit after the fact. Hagler: “His timing was first class, when he threw a punch he got you. He wouldn’t throw and miss and he wouldn’t be out of distance. He was very heavy-handed.”

The book also suggests that Hagler's opposition to English fans after boxing at Wembley Arena in 1980 put paid to his fight with Sibson taking place in Birmingham three years later. At his breaking point, Sibson telephoned his father, Keith, who lit a fire under his son. After a good cry, Sibson awoke renewed and flayed the entire gym. “’In the past, I’ve been too nice to them when training in Leicester,” Sibson would later comment. “I never went out to hurt one of them. But the Americans were determined to rough me up. I couldn’t get used to it at first. Then I decided that I’d had enough, and I was the governor after that.” The former British, Commonwealth and European champion and world title challenger, who shared a ring with Marvin Hagler at Madison Square Garden, eventually came full circle. His net worth has been growing significantly in 2022-2023. So, how much is Tony Sibson worth at the age of 65 years old? Tony Sibson’s income source is mostly from being a successful . He is from . We have estimatedThomas Hearns vs Denis Andries: In the first fight above 160 pounds for Detroit’s “The Hitman,” Hearns secured his third divisional world title after a wild brawl that saw him floor Andries six times before the bout was finally stopped in round ten. Marlon Starling vs Mark Breland I: Marlon Starling’s come-from-behind win over welterweight champ and Olympic gold medalist Mark Breland was memorable for all the right reasons. Two excellent fighters in their prime did battle that night, and despite boxing intelligently for eleven rounds, Breland was unable to stop Starling’s brutal final onslaught. Emile Griffith: “He was coming to the end of his career. He was still maneuverable. No matter how clever you were or tried to be, he could get away.” Marvelous Marvin Hagler vs John Mugabi: Fresh off the crushing win over Hearns, Hagler squared off with “The Beast” John Mugabi. It didn’t disappoint. Periods of punishing toe-to-toe warfare interspersed with smooth boxing from Hagler, who for once met someone as mean and strong as he was. After enduring plenty of the Ugandan’s firepower, Hagler showed more wrinkles to his game and chopped the challenger down to size in eleven. “The Beast” and “Marvelous Marvin” gave fans a war. Lee Roy Murphy vs Chisanda Mutti: An epic and truly legendary battle. Murphy and Mutti went to war in Monaco and gave all they had and no one could have asked for more. But then came the unbelievable ending.
