sport HARPO’s MARKS I had the immeasurable pleasure last month to be invited to a lunch to commemorate the passing, 100 years ago on May 24, 1917, of arguably Australia’s greatest boxer, Les “The Maitland Wonder” Darcy. Les, as I am sure each and every one of you know (if not, give yourself an uppercut and do some research) died from septicaemia in the United States while preparing for a fight after finally being given permission to box by US officials. So, two of the smartest men in the “putting on a do” game, John “Huge Deal” Scott and Peter “Fab” Fenton decided to organise a lunch to celebrate the life of Darcy.
