COLIN JONES

The final chapter is an interview with Welsh hard man, Colin Jones.  When he was boxing, Colin was a man known for his direct approach, which was always honest, sometimes critical, but never emotional.  Nothing has changed in this respect, and his words are sometimes quite chilling, like cold steel.  His descriptions of his two epic British Title fights with Kirkland Laing and his World Title challenges against Milton McCrory will leave the reader breathless.  At the same time, he has a mischievous sense of humour, which manifests itself when the reader least expects it.
