Outback Fight Club Pt. 2

This is part 2 of the documentary about Fred Brophy’s Boxing Troupe. As I mentioned yesterday, King of the Outback is set in the world of tent boxing in the 1950s. What this contemporary documentary doesn’t show, is the large amount of aboriginal men who would work the tent boxing circuit as fighters but in the past (probably from the 1920s right through to 1980s).

But none-the-less, this documentary gives you a unique insight into a world that – if it hasn’t died – is certainly on its last legs.

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.
