Man who last had a fight in 1978 still reckons he could handle himself

A MAN whose last fight was at primary school against a smaller boy believes he still has what it takes if shit went down.

Office manager Tom Logan, 46, defeated schoolmate Martin Bishop 40 years ago, although the ‘fight’ involved little actual punching and was more of an ineffectual wrestling match.

Logan, however, is convinced that he has lost none of his combat skills in the ensuing years.

He said: “Fighting’s like riding a bike. Once you’ve done it once, you’re brilliant at it forever.

“I don’t go to the gym or do self-defence or boxing training like a lot of these muppets you get. I just rerun that fight over and over in my mind.

“If someone kicked off now I’d be straight in there like I was in 1978. I imagine it would be over something more serious than who’s the best character in Blake’s 7 though.

“And this time there’ll be no Mr Laverty the PE teacher coming over just as I was about to get him with a Chinese burn.”
