Want to Feel Old? 22:19 - Mar 2 with 1144 viewsBrianMcCarthy

Eusebio Pedroza died today.

He fought at Loftus Road in 1985 against Barry McGuigan.

He was 62!

McGuigan's still 12, right?

62? Is that his 'Sandro' age?

That was a great fight. McGuigan at his peak and Pedroza tough as nails. RIP.

Found out afterwards that a mate of my Dad's had spare tickets and went by himself without having the decency to inform us of this fact! Have never forgiven him.

I was there that night and it was the loudest noise I have ever experienced, not the same as the Oldham play off, where the stadium was shaking but it was a constant noise.

Couldn't hear Danny Boy or the ring announcements and the British Queen had never seen a night like it before or since.

Remember the fans coming over from Belfast in huge numbers. I was on one of the 747s that were sent empty to Belfast and came back full of good natured Barry fans. Remember watching the fight later on TV truly great contest.
