    Jim Brady became a newsagent in Dundee. He was a very nice man and I got to know him a little in 1977, a few years before his death. Even at that age he packed a huge punch. He was tiny but I saw him floor a young man who was harassing him with one punch. The guy didn't know what had hit him! Brady was a product of the old boxing booths and had a very hard life. In the newsreel, although he's a relatively young man, he looks ancient.
