This is a Hand Signed Colour Photo 7" x 4.5" by the late Scottish professional boxer.
Walter McGowan, MBE (13 October 1942 – 15 February 2016), was a Scottish boxer born in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, Scotland. He was renowned for having been lineal world flyweight champion.
He was the son of Thomas McGowan, who had boxed under the name of 'Joe Gans'.
He was a skillful boxer, who showed brilliant footwork and knew how to use the ring. However, he suffered throughout his career with cuts, often having fights stopped despite being ahead on points. Without this failing, he would have had an even more successful career.
