I’ve been hanging out far too much lately with Essex geezers who actually do say stuff just like this. Really. Today one of the old school boxers at the gym (retired: 40 fights, 11 KOs) got in the ring to spar with me: “Let’s just move around a bit.” (They all say this. It’s a lie. It always ends up leaving bruises.) Whereupon he taught me how to get in close, then use my elbow, and if possible head, ideally when the ref can’t see: “bosh”. Brilliant.
