Twenty and Out Summary


Twenty and Out: A Life in Boxing by Mickey Duff

Mickey Duff has been at the top of the fight game since the early 1950s, when as a 15-year-old he cunningly side-stepped the British Boxing Board of Control to acquire himself a promoter's licence - by law a licence could not be issued to anyone under 16. Since then his name has been linked, either through promotion or management, with all the world's best fighters from Liston to Tyson. In Britain, he has managed or promoted the likes of Frank Bruno, John Conteh, Lloyd Honeygan, John H. Stracey, and Alan Minter - all of whom became world champions. In the mid-1970s, along with his partner, Jarvis Astaire, Duff became the supreme force in British boxing - a stranglehold that was to last over 10 years. In this text, Mickey Duff talks candidly about his career, and about how he and his partner Astaire formed their exclusive broadcasting alliance with the BBC. He also tells the story of Britain's loveable hero, Frank Bruno, who Duff criticizes for walking out on the men who made him.
