Book review: Occupation Prizefighter


An outstanding biography of one of Wales’ greatest fighters, meticulously researched to academic standards.

Freddie Welsh was a challenging personality who divided opinions, and this seems to have led to him sliding behind the likes of Jim Driscoll in the pantheon of Welsh boxing heroes.

This book revives the remarkable story of a man who was a superstar on both sides of the Atlantic, a true character and a simply outstanding boxer.

A must-read for any boxing fan, and for anyone with pretensions to understanding the history of Welsh sport.
