    RIP 'arry Carpenter

    Post by Guest on Tue Mar 23 2010, 02:34

    Condolences to his family & friends . . . . .


    Former BBC boxing commentator Harry Carpenter has died at the age of 84.
    Carpenter was the BBC's voice of boxing for almost half a century after joining the corporation in 1949, when he first began commentating on the sport.
    Known for his double act with British boxing great Frank Bruno, Carpenter also presented Sportsnight, Grandstand and Sports Personality of the Year.
    He retired in 1994 and died in his sleep at King's College Hospital in London in the early hours of Saturday.
    Carpenter's lawyer David Wills said: "He had been unwell since last summer when he had a minor heart attack.
    "The funeral has not been arranged but will be a family funeral, to be followed by a memorial service in London."
    The world of boxing has paid tribute to Carpenter, with promoter Frank Maloney describing him as "probably one of the greatest commentators of all time."

    Always remember listening on radio to Brunos first fight with Tyson and when big Frank caught him with a decent right, Harry shouting "go on Frank" he loved Bruno!!

    Rip Arry. Sorely missed. We will probably never see his like again. Frank will be gutted. Condolences to his family.
