LEN HARVEY
The Modern Bob Fitzsimmons
By E.R. Treharne

Published in Reg Park Journal, Mar. 1956
Contributed by Peter Yates

"To attempt to write the life story of Len Harvey in one article is almost impossible, as this great glove artist’s ring career lasted twenty-two years. He fought his first recorded contest in 1920, beating Kid Roberts on points at Plymouth. During his outstanding career, Harvey won the British middle-weight title, British light-heavyweight, British and Empire heavyweight championships."
