9781840186918: Fighting Chance: Winners and Losers in the Ultimate Risk Business

Fighting Chance gets to close quarters with those involved in every day British boxing. It goes behind the scenes at shows and into gyms to meet starry-eyed young men dreaming of world titles, hard-nosed pros surviving another pay day, and veteran trainers who have seen it all and sometimes wish they hadn't. They say this brutal trade provides them with an escape from a life of crime and drugs and an opportunity to find self-respect. All recognize the possible cost, but maintain it is a risk worth taking. Some never rid themselves of the demons and reveal all here.
