No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Tommy Burns was a fighter in and out of the ring. Raised in poverty, he won a bare-knuckle boxing tournament at the age of ten and had found his way out. He was small in size, but feisty, clever, and lucky. Rebecca Sjonger details both Burns' unbelievable rise and his spectacular fall.
