Title: Julius Francis with Lonsdale Belt
Medium: Oil on Canvas
I am proud of this one but what a subject! Julius was British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion. He is depicted with the belt that he won outright for three consecutive title wins. He has shared a ring with four world champions. The painting was the centre-piece for my 2012 exhibition “Noble Art”.
An update: June 2022. Julius is currently trending online and appearing in all the papers following an incident whilst working as a security guard at Boxpark Wembley. Great right hand, Julius!
