He won Olympic bronze, later the Middleweight title, and is a legend in Great Britain. Alan Minter is now deceased.
Former boxing world champion Alan Minter has passed away at the age of 69. The British Boxing Association (BBBoC) announced this on Thursday. A statement said former middleweight champion Alan Minter was mourned. Ex-heavyweight world champion Frank Bruno wrote on Twitter that it was “a sad day for British boxing.”
Minter, who had cancer, won bronze in the 1972 Olympics in Munich. After securing the WBC and WBA titles with a win over Italian Vito Antuofermo in 1980, he was defeated a few months later by American Marvin Hagler at Wembley Arena. A year later, Minter ended his professional career with a record 39 wins and nine defeats.
