Yahoo: this chat room is about the baddest beckley fighters of last 30years.It is a reality that men fight and have always fought. These fighters indeed could be considered at least semi pro. It is a fact that those of us men who indulge in this behavior can indeed be called barbarians or as i prefer :fight enthusiast's. Therefore. apology excepted:-):-):-)

Saw one heck of a throw in the old Time Out club. Don't know the names, but must have been 6 - 10 ole boys going at it. When it was over, nobody was shot or stabbed, although there might have been some sore heads the next day

Udy was very good, saw him box many times. They say he was one heck of a bar fighter too but I never saw him headknocking in the TO or Friar Tucks when I was there.

Some of the retired Beckly PD officers will tell you they wanted several officers before they approached him after a brawl. Although,he was always compliant with them according to my sources.

I sat and read this entire thread because it was so interesting. I'm a girl and wow i was a kid in the 70's and 80's. People just don't know how to fight anymore. Even when I was in high school in the late 80's guys and girls actually fought, with fists. I don't advocate fighting, but man, you just don't see a good throw down anymore. I need to go watch Roadhouse!
In the 80's, actually a WWHS student by the name of Paul Floresca was one of the best fighters in Raleigh county. He fought and whooped allot of the older guys when we'd sneak into the bars. Another tough one was David Williams. He was tough, but he was a bully. He still is from what I hear. He's a Trooper I think. I hear he's all the time beating on a handcuffed drunk now. But Paul Floresca really was one tough guy, and a real gentleman, not a bully. He just whooped allota people.

Does anyone remember who the guy was that owned the vending machines at places in Beckley in the 1970s? He came into Billy Joes at the old Elks club and got his money out and serviced the machines every few days. He was slender and wore a lot of gold jewelry and was in his 40s then. He was a nice guy and i wonder if he is still living. Any info. is appreciated.
I think it was Ronny Warden's son. I forget his first name though, but Ronny used to own Day & Night Garage & Moonlight Drive In there on Eisenhour Drive in Beckley.

Frank Priddy used to wear lipstick and go to bars in Charleston. His ex girlfriend told me that's why she broke up with him was because he would dress up like a woman and liked guys to. That was before he was discharged from the Marines in boot camp because he couldn't hang. But he's done well for himself now. A complete turnaround, and he is actually one of the best Police Officers in Beckley now.
