300-fight journeyman Peter Buckley fought a who’s who of British boxing.
In his long career, he was matched with prospects, contenders, future champions and even future Hall of Famers. He met the likes of Naseem Hamed, Duke McKenzie, Acelino Freitas, Spencer Oliver, Lee Selby, Derry Mathews and countless others.
Often he’d take a call at short notice to save a show but he was written off at his peril, if he fancied his chances you had a battle on your hands.
Here, Buckley - King of the Journeymen - talks about the subculture of British boxing, life in the blue corner and reaching his incredible milestone.
