Mickey made a call to Terry Lawless his manager asking if he had him another fight lined up. “I will see what I can do for you Mickey.’ You haven’t gone through that money already have you?’

“No but I’m keen to earn more I will never get up the rankings fighting every two months.

“Alright, I will fix you up for another bout next weekend there’s a do on at the sorting club and I can get you on the under card.

“Good ring me with the details when it’s all sorted Terry, meanwhile I will keep training. Mickey thanked Terry then hung up.

“I have another fight next weekend in London do you want to come?’

“That was quick; I thought that you would wait at least a month before fighting again.’

“I hardly broke a sweat last night Britta; I had more action in the bedroom with you than with Pat Walsh.

He picked u his bag then the two of them walked to the car park he opened the door for Britta then walked around to the driver’s side.

“Buckle up said Mickey as he backed the car out of the car ark then headed for the motorway.

“Are we going to tell Dani that we are together?’

“Yes she has been urging me to make a move for months so she will be pleased.’

“We cannot sleep together until after the fight Britta.’

“You mean you have to abstain from having sex?

“Yes,’ it’s only for a week until the fight is over then we can be together again.

“Will it be like this every time you fight?


“How many times are you planning on fighting?

“That depends on how long my opponent’s last, I could be fighting every week until word gets around.

“What do you mean?

“Well fighters aren’t daft they aren’t going to get in with me if they know that they could be knocked out. There are fighters just like me trying to climb the ladder to a big money fight.’

“I see; I just don’t want to see you get hurt Mickey; you are only twenty two years old and you have time on your hands.
