Description

Venturing across America by Greyhound bus, Tris Dixon tracked down coulda-been-contenders and cult heroes from the 1950s to the 2000s - fighters from yesteryear who had long since vanished from the limelight. He visited old people's homes, gyms and too many prisons, discovering that life after boxing can be cruel for many former stars.
