Outback Fight Club Pt. 1

My novel King of the Outback, which is released later this month, is set in the world of outback tent boxing. As tent boxing is pretty much unique to Australia, I thought a brief lesson was in order.

Below, in four snippets, is Part 1 of a documentary about Fred Brophy, who ran the last boxing tent in the world. As you’ll see, tent boxing is very different to traditional ring boxing – and at times, a pretty tough life for the fighters involved

I’ll post Part 2 of this documentary tomorrow.

May sees the launch of King of the Outback, the sixth book in the popular Fightcard series – and my literary debut (writing as Jack Tunney). Accordingly, in a month long celebration, Permission to Kill will be looking back and some of the highlights – and lowlights – of boxing in film and literature – and in music too.
