Thomas Healy first discovered boxing when, as a boy, he watched his penniless father fight in a carnival booth in Glasgow for money. Growing up on the gang-ruled streets of the Gorbals in the 1950’s, boxing was soon to become a life-long obsession. For him, the precarious and brave lives of the boxers he followed came to mirror his own. Every match became a return match, a fight of the soul, against the obstacles and hardships of his own life.
