Thousands turned out in Newcastle city centre to witness the extraordinary sight of the Big Bear riding through town on a magnificent white horse. Like a character from a classic western movie, he rode the horse from the Royal Station Hotel to the now-demolished New St James’ Hall where he gave a three-round boxing exhibition and demonstrated his training regime to onlookers. It was part of the Heavyweight Champions European Tour that summer.
