Thanks. Remember him fondly. He was very good at his craft and a positive example for the region's boxing then.
Condolences to his family,friends.

He brings back so many memories. In my early years, I depended a lot on Trinidad and Tobago Television Channels 2 and 13 (TTT) for any sort of television experience. So I watched Mastana Bahar, Riki Tiki, 12 and Under with Aunty Hazel etc etc.

I remember Claude being the only boxer of note from the region ..somewhere during those days. Never really liked boxing...but was proud of a West Indian making his mark internationally, so I watched a couple of his fights anyway.

SIP big man.
