Hi there,

My uncle's father was Seaman Watson, a boxer based in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, who fought between 1925 - 1935.

He was Featherweight Champion of Great Britain in 1933.

Here is his record:

Seaman Tommy Watson

And here is an article on one of his bigger fights at Madison Square Garden:

Chocolate v. Watson - TIME

My uncle is now pushing 70 odd years old and has asked me to enquire as to what some of his father's old boxing gear would be worth if put up for sale (eBay/Auction/private sale/etc).

1. Championship Boxing Gloves made by Rose of London (England)

2. Boxing gloves (as new) signed by four British Champions.

Anyone have any guidance on valuation approximately or where would be best to offer them for sale?

Many thanks!

Seaman Tommy Watson

MY great grandfather was Seaman Tommy Watson and my great uncle who you claim to represent with regard's to selling his boxing memorabilia has no idea who you are.Nor does the rest of the family.In my book that potentially make's you an imposter.
