Summary

From the lean and terrifying days of the Depression in rural New South Wales to the exhilaration and excess of Australian boxing in the sixties and after, the life of boxer Keith Saunders has been extraordinary.

In this fast-paced, funny autobiography that includes some electrifying first-hand accounts of great Australian fights, we glimpse a little of the indulgent world that opened to a few successful boxers, the frustration felt by those Australians who endure racial indignities, and also some of the horror and tragedy of the boxing ring.
