    Default Gary Mason.

    Just heard on the news on Radio 2 that a boxer name of Gary Mason has died. I don,t remember him but they stated that he played Rugby League for London Broncos. Does anyone on here remember him?

    Yeah, it was basically a publicity stunt similar to Cas with Dwain Chambers. Think he probably played for about 10 mins in an a-team game.

    A big lumbering heavyweight renowned more than anything for being bessie mates with (and looking an awful lot like) Frank Bruno. He was a better boxer than Bruno but never got anything like the same media attention. He got well beaten up by a young Lennox Lewis which more or less ended his career way back when.

    A sad loss anyway as he can't have been that old.

    Played 3 games for the Broncos and scored a try.

    38 fights won 37 lost 1 as correctly stated to Lennox Lewis.

    RIP

    He was only 48 when he passed away, yesterday.
    No more 500 Mile round trip for home games - moved to Warrington - now that makes more sense!

    My profile says ' Waiting for the No 17' ? Don't have a danny what that is all about?!

    Didn't he play for Sheffield Eagles too?
    Born in St.Helens (Lancashire). Live in Hull. Probably die in Hull if I keep wearing this Red Vee.
