Book Description

7 Jan 2004
In every city and town in Britain there are men who have earned notoriety with their fists. Bouncers, boxers, bareknuckle fighters, brawlers and enforcers, they are throwbacks to an age when disputes when settled in blood. In this chilling book, Julian Davies interviews two dozen of the hardest men in Britain, from the King of the Gypsies to champion martial artists, to lift the lid on their brutal world of violence, honour and respect. Through the fighters' own words, readers will enter a harrowing world of bloody gang fights, brutal reprisals, pub brawls, and deaths.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stories By Hard Men! 23 Jun 2011
Fantastic book. I really enjoyed it. The author does good to get so many inteviewed - and the men are honest enough to explain some of there stories. Its a shame they have to be short to fit so many in a book - but its really good

4.0 out of 5 stars A subjective list I guess 31 Dec 2010
An interesting read for anyone who is involved in combat sports or martial arts in terms of revealing the mindsets of men who deal with the ins and outs of conflict on a regular basis. One thing of note is that the toughness of many of these men is rooted in their experiences of being bullied growing up. They seem to use all that frustration and anger after they had reached breaking point and decided they aren't taking it anymore. Some learned to box, others learned martial arts, the rest just came out fighting. A common theme though is that they are fighting that childhood bully and the fire that gets fuelled by that is powerful stuff!

Some would argue the list I guess as there's no room for famous heavyweights Lenny McLean or Roy 'Pretty Boy' Shaw in this book. Worth reading if investigating the psychology of fighting.
