Tommy Farr the boxer fought Joe Louis in front of a crowd of 32,000 in New York in 1937. Although he didn't win, he took the Brown Bomber all the way - the full 15 rounds and earned the respect of the world for his efforts. It was said that the whole of Wales was listening to the fight on the radio. http://www.johnnyowen.com/tommy_farr.html

As a follow up to my quiz on folks who died before 21 I thought it would be interesting to investigate a bit to find out who had left us before the age of 30...still very young! I hope this quiz is instructive...enjoy.
