Product description

Ringside drama, heavyweight themes. A gut-slamming tale told over the course of ten rounds. Sunny feels alone when he joins the boxing gym. He’s living in a new city. He has no friends. He’s just been hurt in a racist attack. Boxing gives him protection – and lots more. There’s the community vibe of the club, and a trusted mentor in his trainer Shobu. Finally, Sunny is finding a place to belong. But when a Far Right march through Bristol turns violent, Sunny’s new best friend Keir joins the racists. Now they’re facing off in the ring. It’s about more than boxing. Who’ll win this critical fight?

  • A gripping sports story with big, brave, topical themes
  • Explores friendship, radicalisation and racial tension
  • Nikesh Shukla has been shortlisted for the Costa Award
  • To date he has written three novels and several screenplays

“A brilliant, very contemporary story of fear, hope, racism, strength, boxing and learning to be yourself. Nikesh Shukla writes with a tough fist and a tender heart.” Matt Haig

*Please note this book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.
