Joe Bugner knocks out the big 60 with mates
John Singleton organised a tribute dinner and benefit night for boxing legend Joe Bugner’s  60th birthday party at the Sofitel Wentworth Hotel.

Joe Frazier, Former World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, arrived from the U.S. to join 280 or so guests to celebrate Joe Bugner reaching the big 60.  Amongst the ‘interesting’ crowd were Mick Gatto of underworld fame and marathon swimmer Susie Maroney with her new man Darren May.  Incidentally Susie, already a mother of one, whispered to me that she is expecting another. 

Max Markson was a little quiet on the night and not about to be drawn into any Lara Bingle conversations.

A terrific night and let’s hope they raised a few bob for Joe who was looking pretty good at the do.  I have known Joe since he first arrived in Australia and he still reminds me of a huge friendly bear.
