Benny Jacobs was a Cardiff-born boxing manager and bookmaker, whose career was colourful even by the standards of those lively trades.
His charges enjoyed a great rivalry with the stable of Eddie Thomas at the other end of the Taff Valley in Merthyr.
After the decline of his fighting stable, Jacobs stayed involved in sport as a prominent Cardiff bookmaker. He died in 1981.
