UK rock band. Formed 1975. Disbanded 4 March 1979

Boxer Biography (Wikipedia)

Boxer were a rock band formed by keyboardist Mike Patto and guitarist Ollie Halsall in 1975. They signed to Virgin and three albums followed, Below the Belt (1975), Absolutely (1977) and Bloodletting (1979), which also featured Bobby Tench and Boz Burrell. The band dissolved after Absolutely when Patto became ill.

The band was managed by Nigel Thomas who secured a five-album deal over five years with CBS, reputed to have been worth £1.2million and was never fully executed due to Patto's death on 4 March 1979. During a six-year period Boxer also toured the US and Europe.
