RISEN - The Howard Winstone Story

The true story of Howard Winstone is both remarkable and compelling. As a young man he was one of the biggest rising talents in amateur boxing until a factory accident crushed his fingers, the tips of three were amputated meaning that hand could no longer make a proper fist! His father wouldnt let him gripe and he was soon punching a coal bag to keep his spirits up. Under a new trainer, Eddie Thomas, he started to learn a new style and once again rise up victoriously through the amateur ranks. He had completely changed the way he boxed and from there remarkably went on to become Champion of Britain and Champion of Europe.

Reaching For The Stars - The Howard Winstone Phenomenon - In And Out Of The Ring

The bare statistics fail to tell the full Howard Winstone story. A classical boxer, an injury to his right hand meant that he had to rely on guile rather than power and make his achievements all the more unbelievable. Besides being a superb boxer, Howard Winstone was probably Merthyr Tydfil's most famous citizen. When he retired in 1968, he had nothing left to prove. His warmth of character was reflected in the manner of his retirement. Success had not spoilt him and he retained a modesty and humility that made him loved, respected and admired until the day he died in 2001. This book tells the Howard Winstone story and is an intriguing read that will keep you gripped until the end.
