The son of Jamaican immigrants, Murray writes about his early years in Jamaica, living with his aunt, before he joined his parents in England. Though the fight game has dominated his adult life, his talent for and love of music was recognized early on and led to his acceptance at the Royal Nothern College of Music. His turbulent youth as a single parent, his departure from the College and his discovery of Phil Martin's gym, Champs Camp, which rose from the 1981 Manchester riots led to a profound change of direction. His early years in boxing introduced him to discipline, pain and many unforgettable characters. His developing career, hampered by injuries, wasn't accompanied by great wealth. He did, however, earn the respect of people in the boxing business. Fighters, trainers, managers and promoters, including household names, all play their part in Murray's story.
