Professional Boxer. He was the former World Middleweight Champion (1980). A southpaw, he burst on to the boxing scene at the age of nineteen and captured the Amateur Boxing Association title in 1971. From this success, he represented Great Britain at the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Munich, Germany and went on to earn a bronze medal. Following this experience, he turned professional and secured the British Middleweight Title with a technical knockout over Billy Knight in 1976. He reached the pinnacle of his career with two consecutive wins of Italian fighter Vito Antuofermo which gave him both the World Boxing Council (WBC) and World Boxing Association (WBA) crowns and the distinction as "Undisputed Middleweight Champion." On September 27, 1980 at Wembley Arena in London, Minter relinquished his title to Marvin Hagler in three rounds. He retired in 1981 after compiling a 39 win (23 knockout), 9 loss, and 1 draw record. He died from cancer.
