Book review: Boxers of Wales, Vol IV

Gareth Jones continues his invaluable exposition and documentation of the fighting men of Wales in the fourth volume of the series.

The story moves west to look at the boxers of Swansea and Llanelli, from Teddy Barrow to Taffy Williams.

The well-known figures such as Colin Jones, Enzo Maccarinelli, Brian Curvis, Ronnie James and Floyd Havard are, of course, studied in some depth.

The work also takes in many of the lesser-known figures, while illuminating some of the deeper stories behind little-known greats such as Gipsy Daniels.
