This is a story that is often ignoredthat of the modern-day boxers who lose for a living. Far from huge purses and pay-per-view hype, this book lays bare the reality of the boxing business in small-hall venues. October 2013 saw the 100th and final fight in the career of East London's Johnny Greaves, remarkable in that he won only four contests. He took fights at short notice, facing young prospects with the implicit understanding that he was not there to win. Journeymen features interviews with Greaves and other men who have similarly served the fight game, including Kristian Laight (180 defeats), Jason Nesbitt (178), and Daniel Thorpe (113). Though sometimes dark, their tales reveal humor, wisdom, and sporting pride.
