Description

Journeymen tells a story that is often ignored – that of the modern-day boxers who eschew glamour and lose for a living. Far from the pay-per-view hype, the book lays bare the reality of the boxing business and the way it works in small-hall venues countrywide. Though sometimes dark, the journeymen’s tales reveal humour, wisdom and sporting pride.
