A look into the sporting archives

Each week I'll be delving into our dusty old folders to pick out some pics from the past. This week, boxing is the focus.

Captions are in short supply when it comes to these photos but I can safely say that the Turpins, Barry McGuigan, Ady Bush and Edwin Cleary are among the faces that appear in this week's blast from the past. Maybe you can fill in some of the missing details?
