What's Big in Hyde?


The CDPB theme today is Big. When I asked my friends "What's Big in Hyde?" quite a lot of people came up with the boxer Ricky Hatton.

Last Wednesday Mohammed Ali (aka Cassius Clay) visited Ricky at his gym in Hyde.

Lots of media people were there beaming their stories about the meeting around the world. I just photographed the photographers.

Check out the video reports on BBC news and on BBC Sport.

I actually met Ali when he visited my way as a child. Great day, and he is what I would term a real star, unlike todays wannabees. Truly Big.

Where is BIG Ricky?! Did he shrink? Not so BIG anymore?

A BIG deal indeed. Nicely done!

I'd never heard of Ricky Hatton until I saw the visit of Ali on the television. A super choice and way of looking at today's Theme, Gerald.

Now this is a great interpretation of "big". Like Jilly, I had no clue who Ricky Hatton was...now I know.
