How a little kid from Dublin became a world champion boxer. Bernard Dunne tells his own story in his own words: for children! Growing up in Neilstown, west Dublin, Bernard Dunne was always going to be a boxer. His Dad Brendan was an Olympic boxer in his day, and coached in the CIE club in Inchicore, and his two big brothers were skilled boxers too. As Bernard grew up boxing taught him to believe in himself and helped him to focus on goals both within the sport and in other parts of his life. Bernard won his first boxing bout, at the age of six and against a ten-year-old, and went on to win thirteen Irish championship titles. In this inspirational book, Bernard describes life as a boy in Neilstown, the ups and downs of his life and career, and the powerful life lessons and skills that sport can teach a child.
