"Australia's boxing history is amongst the richest in the world and Paul Cupitt's book is another celebration of that. Paul's research takes the reader back to a fascinating era of pugilism in this country and details a journey well worth discovering."
- BEN DAMON (Boxing Commentator)
"Boxing historian Paul Cupitt's biography of Australian welterweight champion Jack Carroll 84-10-4 (39 KOs) captures the sights, sounds and remarkable record of one of the antipodes' greatest ever boxers. Carroll was one of the greatest drawcards in Australian boxing history, but his story has been largely untold - until now. One of the biggest names in boxing in his day, Carroll's sublime pugilistic skill and drawing power is vividly recreated in Cupitt's compelling biography."
- ANTHONY COCKS (Boxing Writer)
"One of the best Australian Biography books of all time"
