Would be good to see it on permanent display. As well as Australian Heavyweight Champion he was ranked in the top few in the world in his prime. As his Great Grandson I put some work into having him recognised and inducted as a Pioneer in the ANBHOF. The original portrait was hung in the Chrystal Palace at Richmond for his Australian HW title match with the American Joe Choynski, which we won in a fourth-round knockout.
