On This Day: Dick Turpin becomes Britain’s first mixed-race boxing champion

He was born to a black Guyanan father and white English mother in the affluent Warwickshire town of Leamington Spa at a time when there were few mixed-race Britons.

 

He, together with his two younger brothers, Jack and Randolph, became boxers after being bullied over the colour of their skin.

 

They became a boxing dynasty – each enjoying a lot of success.
