IVOR 'THE ENGINE' JONES

One of the most humorous chapters is that of Ivor ‘The Engine’ Jones.  Ivor was virtually unknown outside the boxing world, but he could fill any venue with his army of fans (including the Royal Albert Hall) because of his all-action style of fighting and his relentless will to win.  He tells of his life as an apprentice jockey at Newmarket, where he met his trainer and mentor, Colin Lake, who also makes a healthy contribution.  The two tell of how they cleaned windows in Newmarket, using a car that was stuck in reverse gear, delighting the locals when they drove round the streets backwards.
