The Ghost Of Young Griffo

232 recorded fights – 9 losses the greatest ‘pure’ boxer Australia ever produced – Albert Griffith – Young Griffo – was a turn of the century pugilist, a world champion long lost to the dusty pages of sporting history, a drunkard, a comedian and a legend; a phantom who taunted his foes from across the ring or across the bar room. He died a pauper in a foreign land, forgotten by all but the boxing purists but his ghost lives on.

a 13 pome suite about the life and times of pugilist Young Griffo, this chapbook is not what you would expect from Kami. That said, it has been in the works for more than a year and Jazz From Hell is prouder than a home brewer with an award winning hangover to present The Ghost Of Young Griffo. Fifty copies only, hand numbered and signed. $5 ppd worldwide. paypal is available as is the old fashioned well concealed cash. email for details
