Following on from the success of Boxing in South Yorkshire, in this second boxing history by Ronnie Wharton, we encounter 'The Prize Fight Era', 'Boxing and the Music Hall' and 'Paddy Mahoney', Bradford's first glove boxing champion. The modern heroes are featured in this book too, with Richard Dunn, Tom Collins, John Doherty, Frank Grant and Peter Juson. Boxing in Leeds & Bradford will be a tour de force of the boxing world covering from the late 19th century to the present. It is well illustrated and is a tribute to the great boxers from our region.
Ronnie Wharton has spent many years writing about the Yorkshire boxing scene and for some years wrote a regular column in the Sheffield Star, on South Yorkshire boxers. Ronnie is married and lives in Bradford.
