editorial image

Left Hooks and Dangerous Crooks is an explosive book that takes the reader on a thrilling journey through the lives of underground boxers.

From the birth of bare knuckle and unlicensed boxing to the present day, this book blows the whistle on the many myths and misrepresentations about the sport that have existed in the past.

As the criminal underworld has well known connections with the world of unlicensed boxing, the book also documents the close relationship between boxing and the hidden world of the gangland ‘faces’ and draws you into their violent, frightening and blood thirsty heart.

Author Tel Currie started out as fighter himself and has worked as a boxing promoter.

He also moves amongst, and associates with, well known gangland names.

Having so many villains and infamous characters as trusted friends means that he has first hand information available at his fingertips and is able to really tell it as it is.

No one understands the dark side of boxing better than Tel Currie as this gritty account proves. In this world, not only is fact stranger than fiction, it is often a lot more brutal.
