A ‘WELL-KNOWN’ Sheffield hardman has died aged 77.

Ray Morgan’s funeral took place at Boston, Lincolnshire, this week.

Ray grew up in Sheffield and was friends with Dennis Hobson, the father of boxing promoter Dennis Hobson junior, and Brendan Ingle.

Leading boxing trainer Brendan said: “I knew him in the 1950s and 60s when we worked together as builders.

“He was well-known as a hardman and worked on the doors in the city centre. There was no trouble if he was on.”

Dennis said: “He was a tough guy.”
