A Gift from God
10th 1973 --- April 15th 2000
Johnny had been a
fully trained boxer from the age of 7. He became a
proffessional boxer at the age of 17. He became North West
Champion of light middle weight by the age of 21. Johnny went on to box
at the old trafford football stadium of manchester united football
club. He was on the billing with Nijel Ben and Chris Ewbanks.
Johnny only lost
one fight out of 32 fights. Johnny weighed in at 17
stone and went onto middle weight.
Johnny gave up the
boxing to serve the Lord at the age of 23. But his
warrior spirit lives on in the hearts of the people he encouraged to go
on, and never give up in their times of troubles. He would say 'We are
Buffalo Soldiers' so lets ..........Fight
the good fight of faith.
