Michael Murray's story is not that of an internationally famous and wealthy sportsman, but of a journeyman doing his best to follow his trade and earn a living. The son of Jamaican immigrants, he writes poetically about his early years in Jamaica living with his aunt before he joined his parents in England. His early years as a boxer introduced him to discipline, pain, and many unforgettable characters. His developing career, hampered by injuries, wasn't accompanied by great wealth. He did, however, earn the respect of all in the boxing business. Fighters, trainers, managers, and promoters, including household names such as Tyson, Bruno ,and Lewis, all play their part in Michael Murray's story. The Journeyman is far more than a litany of boxing encounters and anecdotes; it is the human, moving story of a family man following wherever his talents take him.
