More About This Book

Overview

The story you are about to read is true! Only the names have been changed to protect the guilty. It is a story of loves and loves lost, of friendships and betrayals, but it is also the riveting tale of life as a professional fighter.

As one of the more colorful middleweights in the Philadelphia area, "Irish" Teddy Mann fought his way into the hearts of East Coast boxing enthusiasts with his finesse, rugged chin, and quirky sense of humor.
As a high school track and cross country star, he broke more than one school record at Central Regional High School. But Teddy was also a troubled youth, constantly in and out of jail. Falling in with a bad crowd, he eventually went from drug user to drug dealer and built a lucrative smuggling business until the authorities finally caught up with him..
With the prospect of a lengthy prison term looming, Ted knew he had to do something to give the judge a reason not to throw the book at him. As a repeat offender, he knew this time he would be going away for good! In desperation he returned to the one thing he knew how to do well - fight! As a young man Teddy had proven himself an able fighter with a stellar amateur boxing record. So he turned pro in an effort to fight for his redemption. And within a short period of time he'd won the Florida Middleweight and Philadelphia Irish Middle-weight Championships on the way to amassing an impressive 18-1 record against some very tough competitors.
Nigel Collins, editor of Ring Magazine, wrote, "Teddy wasn't just a face-first fighter who would take one to land one. He beat some good fighters. He had decent skills and was able to hang with any middleweight in the world." Teddy fought world-ranked opponents such as "Bad" Bennie Briscoe, Bobby Czyz and Robbie Epps and eventually earned a world ranking before hanging up his gloves.

The misadventures and drama that ensued after his career came to a close will entertain the reader even more than the thrilling account of his exploits In the ring.. Fighting for Redemption: The Irish Teddy Mann Story is a page turner that will doubtless leave the reader wanting more.
