Joe Hangs Up Gloves on Boxing Shows
Former British Boxing Promoter Joe Frater has decided to retire from boxing promotion to concentrate on supporting
his wife Lynne, after her accident at the couple?s home in 2008.
Joe presents Carl 'The Cat' Thompson with a belt in 1993 - "Those were the good days" he says.
Joe would like to thank all of the guests, sponsors and boxing fans who have made the shows so enjoyable and
memorable over the years. While he enjoyed organising the events, it was a time-consuming and demanding job.
Over the years, Joe has brought many huge names in boxing to Cleethorpes ? first at the Winter Gardens and later
at the Beacholme. Barry McGuigan, Amir Khan, Earnie Shavers, Ricky ?Hitman? Hatton, Frank Bruno, Richie Woodhall
and Herol ?Bomber? Graham are just some of the names to have graced the billing at Joe?s shows over the years.
Despite his retirement, Joe wishes the best to all the new boys on the block ? those coming up through the
ranks in local boxing. His son Trevor?s gym in Louth continues to draw in local boxing enthusiasts, and
Joe himself can still be found at his garage on Grimsby?s Legsby Avenue where he runs the family business
with the helf of his other boys.
