he is the true champ
did he have any losses ? i thought a guy called big joe joicy was supossed to be the undefeated king of the gypsies ????
The birds of 1995 singing at the end
Mick hucnels dad lol
thats some heavy hands on the bag
the governor lenny mcclean is the only bare knuckle CHAMP he would make mincemeat of these guys. in less then 45secs
he was not unbeaten my mate Taffy Fletcher fought him for 40 minutes and lost with 6 broken rib so his brother came up from Leinster and put Bartley down in 4.
King? LOL! Borat would kill this gypsy.
Tell me, Why Does He Wear The Hoodie?
Lotta Europeans in these comments
came here to see if this guy sounds like Bane, i was highly disappointed. 
Alexander Brown same
Hardy only based the Bane voice off this guy. It's not an impersonation but rather a stylistic homage. The fact that it's an indistinct accent and has a slightly croaky aspect to it at times. He took those two elements.
The syntax perhaps, but not the tone of the voice :)
that's a lovely lovely voice
Alexander Brown Hahahaha I did too!! What culture? ;)
Good voice on him
Gunnery Sgt Highway of force recon USMC would lose to this true gent
The Real Deal !
Ignoring the racist and hateful replies that I'll probably get, can I just ask this question: Are this 'kind' of Gypsy and 'Travellers' the same 'breed?'
Bartley Gorman should be in the dictionary as the definition of a gentleman. He is definitely a dying breed. Rest in Peace bartley x
a fascinating insight, made by Shane Meadows who also directed Dead Man's Shoes, This Is England and the Stone Roses comeback film. Thanks for uploading, this is far more interesting than the shoddy call-out gypsy fight videos that are all over YouTube nowadays. Mr.Gorman speaks wisely as an honourable Gentleman and may I compliment his beautiful Daughter for her glorious hair.
what song is that he was singing
It's a traditional song called Seven Gypsies. Davey Graham did the best known version, Stick in the Wheel are more in Bartley's style. Both on here if you search for them.
Gorman not pretty but ALL man... wired for doing two things well... kick men's ass and sire sons... full repect for his manly prowess here
+Max Davis So engaging in violence and not using birth control is the mark of a 'man?'
one punch from him,and my ribs would be gone lol
love for old king.. ledgend
ide like to know how many kings the gypsies have actually got??..there bout 20 odd laying claim to being the "king"
Chris Coleman 20? lol you need to add a few zeros mate
Fucking scum, gas them all
You can tell he's got fury in him check out his voice
His book is a great read it really is. A true gentleman you just don't get this kind of men anymore.
Read his book King of The Gypsies & a good read it is👍
CFight me instead ,I don't know you but I bet your part of he ECTG huh???? The English computer tough guy!!!!! I guarantee by you saying that I will fight you and we can tape it and then you can talk about the fight, damn all you English pricks got a hard on for everything and anything Irish......literally go to any YouTube Irish video about anything and there is English computer tough guys talking shit like you lol wow sad lol
Bartley Gorman or o' Gorman another Irish gypsy hero!!!!!!! God bless the Irish and their tough blood that reigns in over 35 different countries without colonizing any,then again how could we wen we were slaves lol haha
Ppl talking bout style... Them days wast about style straight bang for bang
Such a fascinating story, i'm gonna have to buy the book.
The book is a good read I read it years ago👍
golgotha shut the fuck up you melt
Not impressed, just another bag of wind bigging himself up.
I'd fight him and knock him spark out.
It's funny, I lived in Elgin, Keith and Huntly and although two of them are in Moray the people there still spoke in Doric, teuchters one and all.
You are the one who is full of shit sonny, the five years I was living up there and worked for Deutag, there isn't a line where suddenly they stop speaking it.
Your last reply? Good, you're nothing but a waste of skin anyway, a bitter little person with a resentment for everyone who's done better than you.
My dad and big bro? My dad was a copper and I don't have a big bro, both my uncle and cousin both were in the RM though, but I don't have to make this all up because it's all true, that must really annoy you because although you jumped into this thread you've looked nothing but an illiterate prick all the way through.
Sadly for you I'm also married and have four kids, we moved down here so they could get a decent education, you are a shining example of the poor system they have in the north east. I own my own home thanks and have just 3 years on my mortgage left to pay, I'm assuming that you are in an Aberdeen city council property, or maybe you're projecting and you are the one living in your Mums boxroom.
P.S. "a pint with my pal who was in the core for real.", while you're there with him, ask him why the 45 are easy to beat the shit out of (you said, remember?) and also ask him how you spell "core" properly.
People from Elgin don't speak Doric?
You don't know anything do you? Everywhere in between Aberdeen and Elgin and from Peterhead down to Lumphanan, you need to look it up my old mate. I didn't say I spoke it every day, being fluent in a language doesn't mean you walk around using that language all the time you muppet. Again, they probably didn't teach a second language in the special unit, they probably had you making a knotted rug or just tried and failed to teach you how to spell.
I didn't say they spoke Doric in Arbroath, what I said was that half my troop were haggis-munchers, you are dim aren't you.
As for blaming me for making too many mistakes, what a joke you truly are, you are wrong about everything you've disagreed with from my last post.
Deleted your other post because I called you a joke, you still are chummy, a big fat lazy unemployable, single, dickless wanker who tries to undermine people who have done something with their lives.
This isn't an argument, you just look like a tool, and no-one dragged you into this, you jumped in of your own volition with some bullshit about fighting marines, remember that?
Or do you need a reader to come in and read your nonsense back to you?
Fluent doric speaker? More bullshit because people from Elgin and arbroath don't use doric and If you are English speaking doric you would sound ridiculous. Who evers story ur using give it up coz your making to many mistakes now. Deleted my other post because I realised I'd been dragged into an online argument with some Walter mitty wanna be.
You deleted your post mate;
"Your a faker never been a marine in your life to much bitching the boys would be embassed by a cunt like you, you been taught the lingo now trying to con people. As they would say your spinning a dit so wind your neck in. Plus how the fuck were you writing with English phrases like " matey n old mucker" now in the last post you adopted Scottish slang..rumbled...trolling faker."
It's this simple you moronic fuckwit, I was born raised and now live in Bedfordshire. Pay attention as we've covered this before, I was 45 and spent probably in total 7-8 years in Arbroath, married a Scottish woman from Elgin, after discharge lived there for another 5 years before moving back here, clear enough for you? I'm a fluent Doric-speaker now and half my troop were haggis-munchers.
Is English your second language? By the way just so you know, you misspelled these words this time;
"Your" should be "you're"
"to" should be "too"
"embassed" should be "embarrassed" (you should be mate).
"you" should be "you've been taught the lingo", where do I get taught that? Do you want a clue? It's in Devon, go figure it out if you can.
".." again, an ellipsis has three dots thus "..."
Are you going to delete any more of your posts on here? D me a favour and delete yourself along with them.
A jack is a sailor in her majesty's Royal navy, a pongo is a regular soldier.
I can tell from your response that you've been neither, they would be appalled at your level of literacy, "little brats" makes me think that you've never seen a Bootie up close or maybe I've hit a nerve and you've had a good hiding or two from the 45.
"Fud", well this puts you down as a local doesn't it, Bootie took your girlfriend? Beasted your Mum?
I don't care mate, you're little people to me.
"Well done on be a spelling champ"
Wow, you think I'm a champ at spelling? This is how normal people write ya numpty.
By the way here is all your howlers from this last post ya clown;
"Iv" should be "I've" (both times)
"your" should be "you're" (both times)
".." should be "...", it's called an ellipsis (they probably didn't bother to show you them in the special unit).
"be" should be "being"
Your post is also short of three commas and a full stop.
You're probably some Jakey wee bastard who has been on the brew most of his life, you've never done a single interesting or useful thing in your whole pitiful existence so just shut ya geggie, ya scabby walloper.
Randy bobandee holding the heavy bag
aah a fellow trailer park boys viewer...
Paddy Doherty is the king now!
+XenatR The singing Gypsy haha
little nath's gotta fit aunty.
you couldnt dislike Bartly from watching this video, just a nice respectful fella telling it how it was
I am no Gypsy, or a pretended hard man, my uncial married a Gypsy girl I was young but I can remember how stunning these girls were, and fibey who my uncial married was so good looking I can remember her picking me up, and giving me a kiss which I will always remember, but this man Bartley I could listen to him sing all day, he seems a great guy hard when he needs to be / but also kind and sort of soft if you see what I mean, soft as with the little one's and Family always comes first, what more can you ask for, shame he died, but I hope his kindness rubbed of on many a Gypsy. jim
John John how can he speak for an entire race lol. what a silly question. Everyone is an individual.
+Jack first Do you know what it is about a traveller girl getting with a settled bloke that pisses them off? and is it the same if their sons go for a girl from outside the community?
+jim cragg That's a very nice snippet of family history, I don't understand all the hate either, its why I've been going out of my way to get inside this mucker gee retard's head.
I know a lot of traveller women are stunning, there was a site near me but the council moved them on to suit developers in the end.
There is good and bad in every community, a lot of these idiots commenting here seem to forget how bad people who grow up in settled communities can be.
Just look at people like jimmy savile and the countless people selling class A drugs to youngster' who have no business being anywhere near it.
my local paper has stories every day about a man or woman who grew up in a house getting done for rape, or burglary or for stabbing/glassing someone at the weekend to common shoplifting.
Only very narrow minded, not in my back yard hypocrites judge whole communities on the back of one or two bad apples.
BECAUSE HE WAS A BIG FUCKER EVERY BODY HATED GYPSY, THEY COULD NOT STOP SOME WERE FOR LONG 2 DAY'S AND LOADS OF POLICE AND THEY HAD TO GO, SHOPS WOULD NOT LET THEM IN BUT IF THEY NEEDED ANYTHING THEY WOULD GO TO UN/LES HERE WOULD GET IT FOR THEM AND MY DAD AN LES THERE DAD DIED WHEN THEY WERE 5 AN 6, SO THEY HAD A HARD LIFE GROWING UP BACK THEN IF YOU HAD NO DAD EVERY ONE JUST THOUGHT YOUR MUM WAS A FALLEN WOMEN, SO THEY HAD IT HARD AND HAD TO FIGHT THERE WAY UP, BUT ME DAD LES COULD ALL GO TO PLACES AND THEY WOULD KNOW MY DAD AN LES AND IT WAS OK NEVER ANY TROUBLE THATS WHY I FIND IT HARD WHEN PEOPLE SAY SHIT ABOUT THEM CAUSE I NEVER SEEN ANY. AND I WAS NOT THAT OLD 15/16 BUT I THOUGHT HELL THESE GIRLS ARE OK, AND FEBA WHO LES MARRIED TO ME SHE LOOKED LIKE A FILM STAR, NOW YOU WOULD SAY SHE WAS FIT AS FUCK, LOL, NEVER DID ME OR THE FAMILY ANY HARM SO I CAN'T SEE WHY EVERY ONE GET'S GOING ON THEM, [TREAT PEOPLE AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED ] E.G SAY HE'S A DICK HEAD THEN THATS HOW HE WILL ACT.
+jim cragg I didn't think traveller girls ever married outsiders?
how did your uncle manage that without getting the shite kicked out of him by her brothers?
it baffles me why shane meadows never made a full length version of this , i know there was talk of a film but i dont think many people would of been bothered , if he made a 2 hour doc about his life from the start to his death if could of been one of the greatest docs of all time, maybe the lack of actual footage of bartley was the reason, shame
Yes, although any film about Bartley would have to centre on him purely as a fighter & I think his culture would be rather secondary?
You Joker something always fascinating about nomadic cultures. They seem "Out of Time". But their oral history traditions are amazing.
I asked Shane numerous times. He say's he will eventually do a film about Bartley.
Agreed. All the stuffs there. somewhere.
lost for words, respect
Maybe this guy should fight Nate Diaz. He couldn't do any worse on the ground!
It would be a miracle. Bartley died in 2002
i hate fookin pikey's.... kaka chaveys all
+mucker gee I've been thinking about your problem with travellers, maybe I was wrong.
maybe it isn't your mammy with a taste for traveller cock, maybe its you.
That's where all the hate comes from perhaps? you hate yourself for being a wee faggot and you hate travellers because you have this secret desire for Irish cock in your arse.
You know in your pitiful situation you always have the option of suicide, I'm sure you already know that of course but maybe you should consider it again, it would end your suffering and make the world a slightly better place for everyone else.
Its not like anyone would miss you or anything, you have no girlfriend or wife, you certainly have no children so why not do what you have wanted to do for so long?
+mucker gee Typical coward, start something then bitch and whine when it don't go your way....just shows how yellow you really are,.....like I said earlier you be my pet project now...this is just the beginning.
oh dear..it would seem ive found the site stalker !.....lol.... bye bye silly boy.....ha ha ha ha
+mucker gee Good morning retard, a dull fucker like you obviously wouldn't see the irony in calling someone else inbred.
you really have nothing to say do you? just duh lol duh lol.
If you weren't such a nasty piece of work I would feel sorry for you, it can't have been easy for you growing up with a £20 prostitute for a mother, seeing johns coming and going at all hours of the day and night.
Obviously she was turning her tricks near a traveller site, hence your backwards hatred.
I wonder if you know who your daddy actually is? I doubt your mother does.
when you reply to this try and come up with something a bit cleverer than "duh lol silly cunt duh lol"
Talk to you later joey.
+John John 'you be a townie' ? ? .. and you be a fucking inbred silly little cunt talking shit onyou tube,,,, lol
by the sounds of it this guy had it all, brains brawn and a beautiful voice. rest in peace
what's the song he's singing?
Rest in peace Bartley.
whats the song he sings??
Its a old Irish lament called lipstick sung by jedward
+charlie foggie no probz bro he sings abits of it so its abit different but deffo that song
nice one bro
+Mark Davies .....gypsy sorry lol
+charlie foggie yes mate youtube...irish descendents raggle taggle gypie.
copacetic, ha keyboard warrior hiding behind your screen, put ya details up, share I could find a 6ft deep hole just rite for you
Good old English gypsy. All gypsies and travellers should try take a leaf out of this mans books. Proper morals
I have a 139 IQ Travelers are some of the smartest kindest people on earth and have way more common sense than you REF gawjas.
+Brandon Lane Don't you mean gorgers?
+Brandon Lane And your point is in this thread?
+Copacetic You're a disgrace an untold amount of Traveler's died in the Holocaust if you was here I'd show you what an undefeated English Traveler could do to you in less than ten seconds. Coward
Iceandale this man is a Romani gypsy. there are Romani gypsys in the UK aswell as Irish/native gypsys.
No, the Roma were killed in the hollocaust, nothing whatsoever to do with Irish or English Gypsies
bartley v lenny what happened there/
king of the gypos farce non of them can really fight
+shay brennan I've seen some good fighters, men I wouldn't want to fuck with if I could avoid it reasonably.
+Tartan Pitbull I am a little skinny (by their standards) 62 year old. When I was 15 and weighed just 9.5 stone I threw a 15 stone labourer across a table and was ready to finish him. He did not come from England and was not a Celt. I do and I am. Let us not keep trying to be what we are not :-)
His technique is terrible. He legs are square on instead of one leg infront. He punches with his arms instead of his full body. Does turn his waist when he punches.
+You Joker bartley hit like a mack truck, you can tell by his bagwork
Ali didn't think so hence he sought Bartley out as a sparring partner when he came to UK.
+Britannia he wouldn't have been feared the way he was if he couldn't hit hard....didn't some london hard man refuse to fight him?
A bit harsh, considering his age and that at this point he was at probably at deaths door. I think during his prime there was nothing wrong with his technique.
sonny boyo your a cunting idiot
very loyal traditional family man respect to him
He's a big guy.
Close friend of two twins who once ruled london ile have you know.
Just watching him go to work on that punchbag...age 51...there is no doubt he was really hard man. But I honestly don't believe he'd be able to do Shaw or McLean. It's a shame there isn't any videos of him fighting.
Did Lenny say why he refused?
+joaquinbond007 mclean refused to fight him though, and that is historic fact from the mclean's own mouth.....not hearsay.
+joaquinbond007 He made Lenny an offer to fight, which was refused.... allegedly, that is!
hardest and best gypsy man der every was.
Bartley was a real fine chap who could certainly use his mitts ...Joshor do you know where this was filmed ? Do you have any contact with Bartley's daughter Maria ?
Mark Stephens hope u win it fight stay strong they can do more now a days Hope u recover m8
Would he have beaten the bull Adams ? Former king of the gypsys Respect. Bartley. R I p
Adams wasn't a former king nor was he a gypsy...Bartley would have destroyed him
I've read one of his books,proper hard man
He's the only intelligent Gypsie that ever lived.
coz youv'e known all eh.
This guy was a solid human being all around. I just can't see how Tom Hardy used gorman's as an inspiration for bane's voice. But I do wonder if Brad Pitt's character Mickey in the movie Snatch was inspired by him.
paddy considines Morrell in a room for romeo brass was based on him. pretty accurate aswell
Bartley Gormans book is incredible..such a good read! Captures the decades of his time as a fighter so well!! Big respect BG...RIP!
Bartley Gorman:King Of The Gypsies Bareknuckle Fighter.
You can get on Amazon for about 20p now. Great book.
+Philip Licinio whats the book called then?
they need to make a movie on this guy true badass
Ha! Well they say don't believe a word you read or half of what ya see!!
Hmmm dnt believe everything a book says.. Let alone a gypsy
Visit one american prison everyone's a Bartley Gorton
+christopher serna Haha Americans suffer from little dick syndrome, they come on all videos of real tough guys from Europe or any place and they feel left out because all the so called American tough guys are black lads with their trousers down their ankles who shoot each other from across the street or moving cars. Americans are soft as shit get over it.
+oodjee whos king of travellers now?
+Daniaal Ali he's seen too many hollywood films.
Did he ever fight Hughey Burton?
No he inherited his title by beating Fletcher. They basically fought for the vacant title.
many tthanks for the inspiration Mr. Gorman you remind me of my grandfather a strong man of spirit and the sword - I currently have a fight against cancer and your display of strength, will, dignity and humility will aid me on my journey however that may end - best of the morning to you Sir.
goodluck chap im fighting addiction not good
Proud to be a Fury!

+FamasFTW98 thanks, im a big fan of irish music and this one's gone straight into my top ten
Who knows the song hes singing ?
This man was a gentlman hope I meet u in heaven ur a legand met shaun good few times dana shrewsbury spend good time met him newtoxetor also good people happy new year to you all
+helen williams What an amazing man, I hope to meet him up there too.
What a joke this Bartley Gorman is. He must think everyone is as stupid as he is.Pro Boxers fight with gloves on, they wear gloves, not to protect their opponents face. But to protect their hands. if a boxer was to punch his opponent on the head, with his bare knuckles, that boxer would break every bone in his hand. He would then never ever be able to fight again. He would never be able to punch again. These clowns are bluffers. Bartley Gorman, Roy Shaw, Lenny McLean and Co have never been in a gymnasium in their lives. they are nothing but a bunch of braggarts.
Randolph turpin was a deadly booth fighter n supremely gifted world champion who was second only to sugar ray n had he not had the personal troubles he had then who knows he may have been even better than he was
Ray robinson was Ali idol aswell wasnt he?
Yes, without breaking sweat.
+Barry Walsh would he have beaten gorman bareknuckle fight?
Sugar Ray Robinson
Big joe would break him up in a matter of about 4 minutes lol!!!
You fucking limey's are hilarious with what you think is actually tough lol

The only thing good about 9/11 is several brits died that day lol
and he's a great singer as well!
+Rockunstank Great fighter, great singer, great man.
For those looking for the voice of Bane, you won't fight it. Tom Hardy wasn't doing a straight up impersonation of this guy, merely his accent.
ROFL 4:30 for gypsie Randy Bobandie!
Glad some one else noticed that cheeseburger eatin MaFa too knawmsayin?
What is the song called he is singing ??
What a life.
Reputations that stand up to time and wear, are not easily earned. What a life indeed.
A true Gent from the days of respect and honour. "LEGEND"...
Amazing book! Incredible story! So recommend it. R.I.P. BG V... You were an amazing fighter and incredible man.
What's the name of his book
ok ok, to solve the mystery, bane's voice is similar to this in that accent is fluid and changing - sometimes he sounds irish, sometimes he sounds english, it slips here and there.
ell do it fara caravan!
just my opinion but there are a couple of thousand travelers and millions of Londoners... so if you're the guvner you have the respect of a lot more people... ps read Bartleys book was a good read
I came here to see if this guy sounds like Bane, i was highly disappointed.
he sure did. on the commentary to romeo brass he says so himself. does a decent job of it aswell
I don't know but tell me Paddy Considine didn't base his voice in A Room for Romeo Brass on it.
i can hear it
If you listen carefully you can hear the gruff tone of banes voice when Bartley speaks.
Bartley is a champion of the underworld hence the bane reference from Tom Hardy.
irish travelers are all wrong uns and grasses
English travelers are made of better stuff than the irish knackers who rob old people and rob eachother
Bob Marley bartley is not an english traveller tho
It is really obvious how it did....
similar to bane ,, NO
Hard as a coffin nail! I do think that a lot of those American Heavy weights of his era (Ali, Holms, Frazier and Forman) would probably out skill him and beat him in an official ring under Queensbury rules but in a field in England?....Not a fucking chance.
