TEDDY LEWIS

Teddy Lewis is the oldest boxer in the book (in his late seventies).  He boxed in the 40s and 50s, and he had several fights in the fairground boxing booths.  He talks about being evacuated to Devon as a young boy, working as a fish porter on Billingsgate Market and offers sage views on the problems with our youth culture of today.  His memories are vivid and his words are spoken with that special kind of quiet wisdom that makes one sit up avidly and take notice.
