Description

Born in Jamaica, James Cook came to London at the age of nine. He went on to become a British and European boxing champion and has since dedicated his life to working with the youth of the Hackney area. Cook tells his inspirational story with disarming honesty, from fighting with wheel-clampers in a Tesco car park to falling in love with the Queen.

About the author

When James Cook decided to write his autobiography, his friend of 20 years Melanie Lloyd was the writer he trusted enough to collaborate with. Lloyd has contributed to various boxing publications including Boxing News and Boxing Monthly, but she is best known for her acclaimed Sweet Fighting Man trilogy. Lloyd's lively writing style and uncanny insight into a fighter's mind have put her up there with the very best of the fight-writers.
