Bomber and Brendan Bomber is Herol ' Bomber
Graham, pride of Sheffield, king of the roller-disco, and the most exciting young boxer in Britain.
He takes on all-comers in comedy bouts at working men's clubs, and he trains to the music of Glenn Miller. Bomber floats like a butterfly, and may yet sting like a bee.
Brendan is Brendan Ingle , Bomber's Irish-Yorkshire trainer, manager, friend, confidant and father-figure. He is much more than a journeyman of the fight-game. Brendan cares for all the people who live around him just as much as he cares for his boxers. His gym is a boys' club, a home and a refuge.
This portrait of a dazzling debutant and his charismatic manager was filmed in November as the two men faced the most important test of their professional lives-a title fight for the Commonwealth light middleweight crown. Their opponent was Kenny Bristol , a tough and experienced fighter, recently ranked number two in the world. It was an evening neither Bomber nor Brendan would forget.
