Albert Griffiths, or ‘Young Griffo’ began life in the slums of Sydney as the leader of a local street gang. This proved to be the perfect training for boxing, and before he was twenty, he was the World Featherweight Champion.

Moving to the United States, Young Griffo would become one of the greatest boxers of all time, despite never training and rarely fighting sober.

In a career spanning 232 fights, Girffo would lose only nine, despite multiple arrests and stints in bot jail and various asylums.

Titus O’Reily and Mick Molloy look at one of the greatest boxers of all time, whose life which was stranger out of the ring than in it.
