The Boxers of Wales Reviews

Some of the greatest boxers in Britain have come out of Cardiff and this book is a must-read for fight fans, whether you're Welsh or not. Colin Hart, The Sun Everybody in boxing knows the big names, the men that won titles and made the money. This book is not just about the famous fighters, it's about the forgotten heroes of the Welsh ring. This book tells all their stories and it is long overdue. Steve Bunce, Boxing Broadcaster and Journalist A compelling and fascinating study. Although we are familiar with champions like Robinson, Erskine, Petersen and Driscoll, the author has uncovered some hidden gems - the extraordinary and forgotten stories of Fred Dyer, 'The Singing Boxer', Albert Love and Albert Barnes, to name but three. Claude Abrams, Editor, Boxing News Boxing has played a great part in the culture of Wales and now, thanks to former Echo boxing columnist Gareth Jones, the capital city has its own pugilistic history. Brian Lee, Cardiff historian
