In part 2: British Boxers’ Tommy Dix tells us how he got into boxing after nearly becoming a cropper with whooping cough and having his legs amputated as a child. Tommy also says he was an original guinea pig for penicillin.

Old school fight figure Tommy, 76, a former boxer, trainer and advisor to countless others in the sport over the years, gives his views on boxing, and stories about his life in the game.

The man who nicknamed former champion Shea Neary, ‘The Shamrock Express’ Tommy’s straight talking no nonsense take on the hurt business, is both interesting and unique and his knowledge of boxing is second to non.

Tommy Dix has forgotten more about boxing than many know and his tales of the old timers and his philosophy on the art of fighting is a joy to listen too and feel we should share his knowledge and stories with our readers.

Enjoy part 2 of this series of interviews.
