Description - Tarmac Warrior by Billy Cribb

Billy Cribb was born into a Romani/Jewish family and spent most of his childhood travelling. His early years were marred by the racism and bigotry his family endured at the hands of small-minded locals in the villages where they worked. These random attacks planted seeds of anger and hatred in Billy which later manifested in his fighting - for Billy Cribb became one of the greatest bare-knuckle fighters of his generation. Revealing an underground fight scene, this title traces Billy's career from his first fights on the motorways and A roads around Britain onto the cross channel ferries which provided an arena for many of his early fights. It then follows Billy's move to Majorca, giving an insight into what really goes on on this Mediterranean island: the timeshare racketeering, extortion and organized crime. Billy goes on to recount his move to the USA, where he sank deeper into the world of drugs and violence. He becomes a debt-collector for the Mafia and a star fighter in the Mafia-run fight syndicates of New York and later the cult fight circuit in California. Years later he returned to Britain as a reformed drug addict who had found religion.
