Featuring over 50 boxers from North, Mid and West Wales, including first British boxer medal winner at the world amateur championships and the incredible youngster who was ranked in the world's top 10 by the American Ring magazine when he was just 16 years old, this is the seventh and final volume in Gareth Jones' acclaimed Boxers of Wales series.
Casual observers of the Welsh boxing scene might well think that the best practitioners of the sport have all hailed from the valleys and coastal cities of the south. But the rural counties have contributed their share to the nation's fistic history. In the high-profile heavyweight division alone, the area covered by this book has produced two British champions and another who contested the title. Others have worn and challenged for Lonsdale Belts at lower weights. Packed with photographs - many published for the first time - The Boxers of North, Mid and West Wales features the finest fighters from the bare-knuckle era to stars of the present and future. It is a must-read for any fight fan, whether from Wales or further afield.
