Paying tribute to an EBA stalwart who has sadly passed away

Simon Euan-Smith

EBA correspondent

I WAS very sorry to hear of the death of my old friend Harry Doherty on July 13. He was 78. Harry was president of Kent EBA in its last years, and a staunch supporter of the EBA movement and boxing generally. I’d often see him at shows and EBA functions – not so much recently, because he had health problems, including having been involved in a car crash. He was very knowledgeable – his views on today’s boxers were always worth listening to, and his reminiscences of past fighters were fascinating. And his love of the game was paramount. He was also a very funny man, with a new joke every time one saw him. His son-in-law, Paul, phoned me with the sad news, explaining Harry had had a stroke two days before – and then another. “He didn’t suffer,” Paul said. I’m sure all BN readers will join me in sending condolences to Harry’s wife, Vivienne (who often accompanied him to EBA functions), and all his family and friends. He will certainly be very much missed.
