Pat Barrett Documentry (Part1)

Pat Barrett is one of Britain’s most talented boxers never to have won a World title. He was fast, skilful and had a hurtful punch. He turned pro in 1987 and, after only two years in the professional ranks, won the British light welterweight title.

The following year he went one better and annexed the European title. This win was achieved, very impressively, by way of a fourth round KO over Efrem Calamati, in the defending champion’s home country of Italy. The KO Barrett inflicted on him marked the very first time Calamati was stopped in his career. Naturally, a World title fight was next for Barrett. Unfortunately, boxing up at welterweight, his chance came against one of boxing’s worst spoilers. Manning Galloway, who was actually nicknamed “The Spoiler”, was a vastly experienced fighter, with over fifty bouts on his record going into the match with Barrett. He won a close decision and retained his WBO welterweight belt. And despite winning plenty more fights, in Countries such as Belgium, America and, once again, Italy, Barrett was, unfortunately, destined to be remembered as one of Britain’s finest never to have managed to win a World title. As with Herol Graham, Pat Barrett was a talented boxer who was extremely unfortunate not to have ascended to the very top. He retired, on a two fight winning streak, in 1994. His overall record is a more than respectable 37 - 4 - 1 (28).
