Boxing Dinner Guest Speaker | Boxing After Dinner Speaker
In June 1989, McCrory challenged Patrick Lumumba for the vacant IBF Cruiserweight title, winning the belt via a unanimous points decision. He made one defence of the belt against Siza Makathini in October 1989 before losing it to American Jeff Lampkin in March 1990.
Following the Lampkin defeat, McCrory moved up to heavyweight and in September 1991 lost in a challenge to future world champion Lennox Lewis, failing in his bid to win Lewis's British and European titles. Two victories and a draw against journeymen followed the Lewis defeat before a trip to Moscow in July 1993 resulted in an unsuccessful attempt to win back his IBF belt, losing over 12 rounds to reigning champion Alfred Cole.
The fight was to prove his last as a professional as McCrory retired from the sport with a record of won 30, lost 8, drawn 1.
However McCrory is much, much more. An actor, TV documentary maker, boxing coach, deputy lord lieutenant of Northumberland, honorary colonel Durham ACF, chef, worker with the unemployed across Britain, and of course for the last 25 years one of Sky Television's high profile boxing analysts whose face is instantly recognised across the length and breadth of our land.
