Merseyside’s latest monthly newsletter focuses on Liverpool-based Nigerian Manuel

Simon Euan-Smith


EBA correspondent

THERE’S always plenty to read in Mug’s Alley, monthly newsletter of the Merseyside Former Boxers’ Association, and this month there’s an in-depth piece on Nigerian-born welter Sandy Manuel, who turned pro in his homeland in 1949, emigrated to the UK in 1952 and settled in Liverpool. BoxRec shows 63 pro bouts for Sandy, with 48 wins and three draws, but there’s a gap between his debut, a points win over Kelly Brown in August 1949, and a seventh-round stoppage by Boha Lawal in April 1952 (both in Lagos), and the article lists several more bouts in between. Manuel made his UK debut on New Year’s Day 1953, losing on points to Colin Harrison at Liverpool Stadium, but would win his next 13.
