Summary

Given away as a six-day-old baby, Richy really began his life fighting. He was brought up by a loving couple in the fine northern seaside town of Hartlepool, but fighting became a way of life, and he couldn’t escape it as much as he tried. 

Growing up in a fighting town - with a passion for punk music, a liking for boxing, and a reputation for fighting - Richy would find himself in many situations with some infamous faces, such as prison icon Paul Sykes and Tyneside’s Viv Graham and his big fight with the notorious prisoner Charles Bronson. 

Richy has lived his life with a strong moral code, impeccable manners, and a gentlemanly attitude, but, of course, when you mix that with bouncing in clubs and being in prison, those are traits you can't always abide by, and using extreme violence was sometimes necessary, even if it meant having to dodge a bullet or two. Some of his fights have passed into local folklore due to the brutality of them. 

ABA boxer, unlicensed boxer, bare-knuckle fighter, street fighter - Richy was all of these. Northern Warrior is the true story of a modern-day gladiator. It hasn’t always been an easy ride, but Richy has faced every challenge with a warrior's mentality. Richy is a fair and honest man, and is still very much alive and kicking. His journey is far from over, and he continues to live by his motto in life which is...

“It’s nice to be important, but it's important to be nice."
