August 28, 2019 | by Matt Halfpenny


England Boxing is sad to learn of the death of one of the country’s longest-serving judges in Terry Giles.

Terry was approaching his 86th birthday, serving as a judge on the amateur boxing circuit up until very recently In London.

He covered every domestic championship staged for nearly 58 years – most of them with his beloved Dagenham Amateur Boxing Club.

Among those he has seen at close quarters who have gone on to compete at the highest level are Charlie Magri, Henry Akinwande, John H Stracey, Alan Minter and Nigel Benn.

The send-off for Terry will take place on Wednesday 11th September from 2pm at Corbet’s Tey Crematorium, Ockendon Road, Upminster, RM14, 2UY.

Our deepest condolences go to Terry’s family at this time.
