King of the Journeymen: The Peter Buckley Story [9781785317859]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
King of the Journeymen is the gripping autobiography of Peter Buckley, a pro boxer who fought 300 times and was a 'stepping stone' for world champions such as Naseem Hamed and Duke McKenzie. As a boy, Buckley shone as an amateur boxer, but outside the ring he was heading for trouble. He was suspended numerous times from school and sent to prison at age 15 for assault and robbery. Whilst inside, his father died. His life felt hopeless and seemed to be going nowhere. But after his release he turned to professional boxing and things started to improve. Labelled a journeyman, he fought often and lost often, whilst earning more money than he'd thought possible. Buckley never refused a fight, often accepting bouts at a few hours' notice or after a night out. King of the Journeymen is an inspirational tale of a man tenaciously fighting for a better life. Although he lost more fights than he won, Buckley persevered with his career and attained widespread respect from boxers and fans alike.
AUTHOR: Peter Buckley has collaborated with Chris Akers to tell his story. Chris has written for websites such as Fight Post, Ultimate Boxing Results and East Side Boxing. As well as reporting on domestic and European title fights, he has interviewed boxers such as Mikkel Kessler, Wayne Elcock, Nathan Cleverly and Maureen Shea. He recently contributed to the Birmingham anthology of the Dostoyevsky Wannabe 'Cities' series. This is his first book.
