Product description


A unique book about a unique man. Meeting the Guv'nor is the pacy and dramatic testimony of Alan Mortlock, promoter and kingpin of unlicensed boxing in Britain, and outspoken Christian evangelist with a passion for bringing Christ to the villains and hard men among whom he lives and works. Once an alcoholic drug dealer whose life revolved around street fights and gang warfare, Alan's conversion has given him one of the most fascinating stories of London's East End.

About the Author

Alan Mortlock is a boxing trainer and promoter based in the East End of London. He is known in the sport as the ‘Pirate Promoter’ because he champions the cause of unlicensed boxing (i.e. not recognised by the British Board of Boxing Control). Alan’s surprising other life is that of a committed evangelist, and he heads up the Godfellas, a group of tough East Enders who travel the country presenting their boxing skills and sharing the Gospel.
