The Mersey Fighters: Volume 3 hits the shelves
Liverpool may currently boast a number of champions but the city has a long and rich boxing history. Two respected voices from the Merseyside fight scene have taken it upon themselves to share some of the stories which are all too easily overlooked by those without links to Liverpool and have released the third volume of the popular Mersey Fighters series of books.
Gary Shaw and Chris Walker spent months speaking to the fighters featured in the book and have painstakingly assembled fourteen individual stories which not only provide detailed analysis of the careers of the men involved, but also mix in interesting and amusing tales about what takes place outside the ring.
George Turpin talks about competing at the 1972 Munich Olympics whilst eleven Israeli athletes were being held hostage by terrorists. Former British flyweight champion, Paul Edwards, talks about picking up the Lonsdale belt and his love of the amateur game. Noel Quarless describes life as a heavyweight in the entertaining 1980's and world title challenger and former British super bantamweight champion, Richie Wenton, talks about his fateful encounter wth Bradley Stone and facing off with Marco Antonio Barrera. The stories are endless and the characters entertaining.
If you fancy treating yourself to a late Christmas present or are simply interested in reading about some of the sport's unsung heroes, get in touch with Gary or Chris and pick up a copy.
