The Boxers of South, West & Mid Glamorgan Summary

The Boxers of South, West & Mid Glamorgan by Gareth Jones

The historic county of Glamorgan has a proud and successful boxing heritage, as can be seen by the 50-plus boxers featured in this, the sixth volume of Gareth Jones' renowned Boxers of Wales series. Having already profiled the boxers of Cardiff, Merthyr and Pontypridd, as well as the Cynon and Rhondda valleys, in previous volumes, Gareth Jones now completes his impressive journey around the old county by focusing his attention on: Glamorgan's coastal towns, which have produced dozens of top fighters, not least the Selby brothers from Barry and one of the first Welshmen to wear a Lonsdale Belt, Port Talbot's Bill Beynon. The old mining valleys, from the Neath to the Ogmore, which have nurtured many ring warriors over the years, including the fistic hotbeds of Maesteg and nearby Caerau: home to a string of champions and contenders. Packed with more than 100 photos and illustrations, as well as decades of unrivalled boxing knowledge, The Boxers of South, West & Mid Glamorgan is essential reading for all followers of the noble art.

The Boxers of South, West & Mid Glamorgan Reviews

'If I want to know anything about the history of Welsh boxing, Gareth Jones is my man. Delighted he has produced another book in his Boxers of Wales series - particularly as it includes someone I will always have a soft spot for, Lennie 'The Lion' Williams, who had two epic battles in the 1960s with Frankie Taylor and Howard Winstone.' Colin Hart, Boxing Columnist, The Sun; 'The Selby boys are here. Amateur glory, world title, so much talent. But once again it is a fighter that only the purest of fans can recall who catches the eye. This time it is Wee Willie Davies, a world-class flyweight, born near Maesteg, who moved to AmericaSteve Bunce, Broadcaster and Journalist as a child and met nine world champions. Welsh boxing, British boxing and even world boxing owes Gareth a great debt.'
