"A superb read.
Every one of the 14 interviews is hugely interesting.
This is a must for the British boxing fan."

Synopsis
The interviewees - or "victims" as Lloyd affectionately terms them - range from the well-known former world middleweight champion Alan Minter, who tells the story of his epic and controversial fight with Marvin Hagler, to the hardly noticed such as journeyman Peter Buckley from Birmingham. The last interview in the book brought Lloyd a scoop she would rather have done without. She travelled to her Welsh homeland to talk to Howard Winstone and became the last person to interview the former world champion. Three weeks after the meeting he died. The other interviewees are: Jimmy Tibbs, Steve Robinson, Mickey Cantwell, James Cook, Colin Dunne, Billy Walker, Spencer Oliver, Crawford Ashley, Bob Paget, Nobby Nobbs and Johnny McManus.
