William Hague (boxer)

William Ian 'Iron' Hague was a boxer who was the British Heavyweight Champion between 1908 and 1911. He was born on November 6 1885 in Mexborough, South Yorkshire.

One of his descendants has said on the web "There are a number of family stories about Iron Hague. One was that he worked in an iron foundry where they cast anvils. He used to be able to straight arm lift 2 anvils, one on each arm and would challenge any man working at the foundry to do the same and he would pay them a pound... he did not pay up very often, if at all!."
