In 1947, 16-year-old Pat Ford stepped into the ring at the newly established CYMS boxing club in Dalton’s Mill on Peisley Street, Orange. By 1950 he was NSW Amateur lightweight champion. Going professional the following year, Pat claimed the Australian and Empire (Commonwealth) lightweight championships, winning over crowds in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and back home in Orange, before retiring to run his own butchers’ shop in 1955.
Celebrating the career of a remarkable Orange sportsman, this Orange Regional Museum foyer display features rarely seen photographs, film footage and sporting memorabilia.
