Our Thoughts and Condolences are with Roy Shaw's friends and family today as Roy is laid to rest. Rest in Peace Roy...


Infamous prizefighter Roy 'Pretty Boy' Shaw, one-time Britain’s hardest criminal, has died at the age of 76

The East End kid-turned-armed robber-turned author was best-known for his bouts with street-fighting legend Lenny McLean.

Yet the kid born in poverty in Stepney in 1936 was more infamously known for his underworld bouts, serving 18 years behind bars for armed robbery in 1963—part of his sentence at Broadmoor for the criminally insane where he got electroconvulsive shock therapy.

He always said: “I hate the system—the system could never beat me.”

But he gave up the bad life when he was released in the 1980s and moved out to Essex.

He said a few years ago: “You can’t continue to be a rascal all your life—you have to settle down.”

His autobiography ‘Pretty Boy’ was a cult hit in later years.

Londoner Roy was best-known for his bouts with street-fighting legend and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels star Lenny “The Guv’nor” McLean. The score stood at McLean 2, Shaw 1 when Lenny died in 1998.

His fights included victories over Donny “The Bull” Adams and world class heavyweight Ron Stander, 67, who once defeated Smokin’ Joe Frazier. His friends included EastEnders stars Billy Murray, 70, and Jessie Wallace, 40.
