Description - Born to Fight by Richy Horsley

I took some good shots from him and then I opened up my arsenal and we traded toe to toe. I had a burning desire in me to win and started to get him on the back foot, when I put him down with my right hand. He got up and took the count and the ref waved us to continue. I went after him like a predator, and was all over him, lefts and rights smashing into his head. The crowd loved it...To the unsuspecting, Richy Horsley could just be an unassuming thirty-something character. Yet in reality, Crazy Horse, as he is better known, is part of the underbelly of the hardman scene. Boxer, street fighter and bouncer, there are few men tougher. So tough is he that he has even accepted a challenge from Britain's most dangerous prisoner, Charles Bronson, to be his first boxing opponent on Bronson's eventual release.Richy did not become one of the staunchest fighters in the land without his fair share of turmoil. Having lost his father at an early age, he channelled his anger through his fists as he became embroiled in run-ins with the law. It was boxing that saw him turn his rage into something more positive and his anger was used on his opponents in the ring.A true warrior in heart and mind, Richy's name is one to be feared and respected. His story shows that even in the face of overwhelming odds, it is possible to become a real champion.
