The historic county of Glamorgan has a proud and successful boxing heritage, as can be seen by the 50-plus boxers featured in this, the sixth volume of Gareth Jones' renowned Boxers of Wales series. Having already profiled the boxers of Cardiff, Merthyr and Pontypridd, as well as the Cynon and Rhondda valleys, in previous volumes, Gareth Jones now completes his impressive journey around the old county by focusing his attention on: Glamorgan's coastal towns, which have produced dozens of top fighters, not least the Selby brothers from Barry and one of the first Welshmen to wear a Lonsdale Belt, Port Talbot's Bill Beynon. The old mining valleys, from the Neath to the Ogmore, which have nurtured many ring warriors over the years, including the fistic hotbeds of Maesteg and nearby Caerau: home to a string of champions and contenders. Packed with more than 100 photos and illustrations, as well as decades of unrivalled boxing knowledge, The Boxers of South, West & Mid Glamorgan is essential reading for all followers of the noble art.

There has always been a great boxing tradition in Newport and the valleys of Monmouthshire, but recently the area has excelled itself. Over the last two decades, no fewer than four world champions have been groomed in local gyms. Robbie Regan, Gavin Rees, Nathan Cleverly and the incomparable Joe Calzaghe may be the stand-out achievers featured in this book, but they are far from the only stars remembered here. Johnny Basham and the `Maesglas Marciano', Dick Richardson, lead the way for the city on the Usk, while there are many others who have worn the Lonsdale Belt or claimed Commonwealth Games medals. And the changing face of boxing is epitomised by Ebbw Vale girl Ashley Brace, the first woman to top a professional bill in Wales - and the first to win an international title. Some 70 boxers are pictured and profiled. Any fight fan, whether a `Gwentie' or not, will enjoy this book.

The first world title fight in Wales featured Swansea lightweight boxer, Ronnie James, and the city produced another three challengers at the highest level before Enzo Maccarinelli finally reached the pinnacle. Colin Jones, Brian Curvis and Floyd Havard were far from the only top-class exponents of the boxer's craft to emerge from Wales's second city. And the rival conurbation across the Loughor Bridge has contributed its share of stars to the fistic firmament. As well as two-weight British champion Robert Dickie and the legendary Gipsy Daniels, who once knocked out the great Max Schmeling inside a round, Llanelli gave birth to the man who codified the laws by which the sport is regulated, famous under the name of his patron, the Marquess of Queensberry. Some 50 boxers are profiled in these generously illustrated pages. Whether or not you hail from the area, if you are a fight fan, this book will make a worthy addition to your shelves.
