I was back at London’s Boxing Fayre after a gap of a few years at the event held at the Dick Collins Hall in Camden, North London on Saturday, October 9th 2021. And as ever, it provided a superb meeting ground for aficionados of the fight game. On display at my stall were copies my biography of Frankie DePaula, Jersey Boy: The Life and Mob Slaying of Frankie DePaula and the Cambridge Companion to Boxing for which I contributed two essays: “The Africans: Boxing and Africa” and “Jose Torres: The Boxer as Writer”.
