Knowing how good a fighter Wayne was it was good to read how he thought his career had went. Always up for a fight no matter how tough his opponent seemed and he always fought hard and fast letting his opponent know he had been in with a true boxing great.

Well worth reading from John Gordon Sinclair, moved along at a decent pace and had you feeling for the characters involved.Surprised by the ending as I thought it could have been taken on slightly further. Look forward to more from this writer in the future.

If you have seen the tv series then there is no need to buy this book as you wont find anything else to be different. Very short book and I am glad I only got it in a deal as I would have been upset to pay full price for it.
