15 fights, lost 5,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Guv'nor (Paperback)
A good read but a little far-fetched. Lenny didn't have 3000 fights. He had 15 and lost 5. Cliff Fields knocked him sparko in one round and Johnny Waldroun put his lights out in under one round TWICE. Lenny said at the time that Cliff Fields "looked like he came out of the mountains".
Bearing these facts in mind this is a good read and probably the best of the "hardman" genre.
Roy shaw once remarked it was the ginseng that had lost him his third fight with Lenny. Lenny said "It could have been the ginseng, or it might have been the righthand that put him in the third row".

The stats here in regards to his 5 losses are not in the book, BUT!! The information is correct. Trouble with these types of bio's. These guys have rough backgrounds and are making money out of writing about all their wrong doings. Im always left feeling that these bio's are a bit fabricated and twist the truth.

Totally agree. i once read Nosher Powell's bio, it was hilarious. A lot of very tall tails I thought, but very entertaining.
