Description

Born to Box is the story of Nipper Pat Daly, arguably boxing’s greatest ever prodigy. A pro at age ten, by 14 he was beating grown men and at 16 ranked in the world’s top ten. But tragically he was overworked and forced to retire by 17. Told by the author and by Nipper himself via his previously unpublished memoirs, it is a story like no other.
