Jack Bodell: Former British, European & Commonwealth champion dies at 76
Former British and European heavyweight champion Jack Bodell has died, aged 76.
The Derbyshire-born fighter won amateur honours at light-heavyweight and claimed the British heavyweight title as a professional in October 1969.
He lost the belt to Henry Cooper but won it back in 1971 when a victory over Joe Bugner also secured the Commonwealth and European titles.
His career ended in 1972 after 58 wins and 13 losses, and in later life he suffered with dementia.
