Uncle Chicka Madden recalls the many Aboriginal boxers and their triumphs, many of whom came from other parts of the country, such as at Ray Horne’s gym, Johnny Jarrett and Johnny Patten and Gordon Bell, Alec Bowden and Darby Brown all got their starts. At Ern McQuillan’s gym were Tony Mundine, Dicky Blair and Sharky Raymond. Wiradjuri boys Teddy Rainbow and Roy Carol were good friends of the outspoken Charlie Perkins and Roy was a huge supporter of The Foundation for Aboriginal Affairs.
