Soldier On by Ross Burkinshaw
SOLDIER ON – by ROSS BURKINSHAW
When Sheffield’s Ross Burkinshaw was a serving soldier, British Army rules wouldn’t let him become a professional boxer – so he got the rules changed. His story of determination and tough, uncompromising fighting – inside and outside the square ring – propelled him to English, European and Commonwealth titles. This book tells Ross Burkinshaw’s full story for the first time: fights and brawls, love and heartbreak, titles and injuries, arrests and charity work.
Like Ross Burkinshaw’s career in the ring, his autobiography doesn’t pull any punches. It’s brutally honest about everything from struggles with depression to dining with royalty. Nobody’s career was a bigger rollercoaster than his, but he soldiered on regardless.
