King Of The Gypsies

For twenty years, legendary hard man Bartley Gorman reigned supreme in the most brutal of all pursuits: illegal bareknuckle prize fighting. He challenged infamous London brawlers Lenny McLean and Roy Shaw - neither accepted - and fought down a mineshaft, in a quarry, at horse fairs, on camp sites, in bars and clubs, and on the street. After surviving a brutal attempt on his life by a mob, he became a living legend. Here, Gorman tells an uncompromising but touching story of a man compelled by the weight of his own family history to fight and suffer pain. Illustrated throughout.
