When he turned pro, he had an unbeaten run of 28 fights in three years, winning the British and European and World Welterweight Championships in a career spanning 17 years.
He still enjoys his T.V. and film work and has appeared in such shows as "Minder" "Brushstrokes", and "Eastenders". He also appeared in the film "Hamlet" with Mel Gibson.
John played a major part in the success of the film "The Krays", acting as Boxing Trainer to Gary and Martin Kemp for a full six months.
John tells stories of his East End upbringing and his exploits in the ring and his personality, combined with his natural Cockney charm and humour make him a joy to listen to.
He always brings along his cherished World Title Belt for everyone to see.
