They do all the great Got, Not Got series
and plenty of toher retro sports titles.
This Sunday, 2 October, sees the launch of Melanie Lloyd's Sweet Fighting Man (Ring of Truth) at a meeting of the London Ex-Boxers' Association.
All the London-based fighters featured in the book are going to be there, including Colin Lake, Ivor 'The Engine' Jones, Colin Dunne, James Cook and Sylvester Mittee. Bunny Johnson is coming from Birmingham, and Dave 'Boy' Green is going to do his best to come down from Cambridge.
Here's hoping it's a knockout night - soon to be followed by Melanie's appearance on Saturday, 14 October at the Boxing Memorabilia Fair.
Sweet Fighting Man (Ring of Truth) is based on a collection of interviews with British boxers, from journeymen to champions.
The book covers a timespan of over 50 years and features some classic personalities, such as Dave ‘Boy’ Green, the ever-popular British and European Champion who fought for world titles against Carlos Palomino and Sugar Ray Leonard; Bunny Johnson, the first black British Heavyweight Champion, and Joe Somerville, the jovial journeyman who had literally thousands of fights in the lurid environment of the boxing booths.
Boxers are fundamentally entertainers and each chapter in this book is an individual performance, giving the true flavour of the characters involved. Their thought-provoking reflections proffer a unique insight into the often rollercoaster life of a professional boxer. The interviewees also talk about many aspects of their lives away from the ring and, as they drop their guards and open their hearts, they deliver plenty of laugh-out-loud moments along the way.
The fighters in Sweet Fighting Man (Ring of Truth) pull no punches as they tell their vibrant stories of victory, defeat and everything in between:
