The Bristol Boys: The Untold Story of Bristol's Champion Boxers

From around 1780 to 1820 boxing was the most popular spectator sport in England.

Amazingly, five of the English bare-knuckle champions - the best of the best - were born in Bristol, where venues such as the Hatchet Inn provided a platform for their extraordinary courage. 

In this fascinating book Jack Allen tells their story with verve and compassion. He also recounts the amazing and little-known life of Captain Robert Barclay, pugilist, trainer and champion pedestrian.
