Greetings. Haven't posted at my usual frenetic pace lately. Our dog Buster died yesterday after a lengthy illness. Kidney failure and complications. He used to sit on the floor by my chair and wait patiently for me to finish whatever I was doing before we'd go for a walk or have a meal. My wife and kids are devastated. He missed his tenth birthday by just a couple of weeks. His sister from the same litter died three years ago. That leaves the third pup, Tink, the runt of the litter.

Wrapped him up in his favourite blanket and took him to the vet for cremation. Have decreasing faith in vets. Spent more than $500 on meds that did nothing but drag things out.

I always called him a Spandel, cause he was a cross between a cocker-spaniel and a poodle. He was a real clown.

Joe Goddard descendant

Hello,
I just wanted to thank everyone who has been supplying images and information here.
Joe Goddard is my great great grandfather and I have had a great time looking for all of the information that I can find about him.
If anyone finds any new information or images please let me know. He was a great man.
Thank you,
Twiggy

Hi can someone explain this one to me please- Does this mean that Joe Goddard was 5th best in the world at this point? Thanks

Hate to break this to you, mate. If you check the title of this thread you'll find that like all the rest of them, this is a fictitious alternate universe loosely based on historical persons.

For actual records of your ancestor you should check out Boxrec.com as well as the National Library of Australia.

OK I don't really understand! So did Joe Goddard never have the British Heavyweight Champion title?
I know that he was one of Australia's first heavy weight champions and I have many newspaper clippings, and a lot of it matches with what you have here. So I do not really know how to filter fact from fiction!

And sorry to hear about your dog.

This forum "Inside the Ropes" is based on a computer game called Title Bout Championship Boxing. The threads in this forum are works of fiction, but some, like mine, have a wee sliver of fact woven through them.

Clippings from various US newspapers following the Jack Johnson - Jim Jeffries world championship fight.....In the only preliminary bout referee Billy Roche awards his decision to Tom Sharkey over Oakland Al Brown resulting in much criticism from the ringside press the majority of whom had scored the fight for Brown by an overwhelming margin...While Brown was virtually unmarked Sharkey was badly bruised and bloody and had to be helped to his dressing room....Jack Johnson was awarded seven of fifteen rounds by Referee Graney with two rounds even though most ringsiders had scored them for Johnson....While Jeffries was the aggressor throughout the match he failed to land significant damage until the 11th round when he had Johnson on wobbly legs....Johnson's vicious uppercut dominated the fight and had Jeffries bloodied and stumbling when the final bell rang....Jeffries later blamed his loss on his poor condition....Johnson and his corner went on to party all night.
