Book review: 'Boxer Handsome' by Anna Whitwham

Anna Whitwham’s debut novel doesn’t pull its punches. It opens with a fight on a canal path between two amateur boxers scrapping over a girl, and one ends up bottling the other. So much for the Corinthian spirit – this is more like potato spirit in a jam jar.
