Harry Carpenter RIP
Mainly remembered I suppose for his double act with Frank Bruno, Harry Carpenter who died on Saturday was an outstanding boxing commentator. Knowledgeable and with a genuine interest in the game, he represents to me the golden age of post war British boxing. I grew up listening to Harry Carpenter who covered the first two World Title fights involving British fighters that I remember - Rocky Marciano versus Don Cockell and Randy Turpin's defeat of the legendary Sugar Ray Robinson. They don't make 'em like you anymore 'Arry.
