Passing of Roy Francis
I am extremely saddened to hear of the passing of former star referee Roy Francis.
Roy was a boxing man through and through, but above all that a thoroughly nice man, who was always great company.
Roy spent his lifetime in boxing both as a boxer and a world class official and I was extremely proud to present him with an award on the occasion of his last refereeing appointment on one of my promotions.
Sincere condolences to Roy’s family.
