Description

The Story of Welsh Boxing revives the memory of pugilists dating back to the 'prize fighters' who fought with sword and staff in the days of James Figg, considered the first Champion of England. For the first time, Lawrence Davies offers a vivid, atmospheric glimpse into the lost world of boxing's bare-knuckle era, and into the lives of its Welsh heroes.
