Albert Oldman, a City of London policeman who had earlier served in the Horse Guards, qualified for the final of the heavyweight division at the 1908 Olympics with a quick KO over [Ian Myrams] of Manchester followed by a bye in the semi-finals. In the final, Oldman faced [Syd Evans] of Reading, the current ABA champion, but unfortunately Evans had injured his shoulder in an earlier round and was no match for the aggressive policeman. Oldman won by a KO within two minutes and took the gold medal after fighting for a total of less than one round throughout the entire competition. In 1910, he left England to join the Ceylon police.
