Okay thanks for the book title... I just found some articles on Battling Siki I will share here once I have sifted through them. As for the 1980's Errol Christies Biography was mostly about the era of the 1980's a fascinating read.Will have a look around for you and post anything of interest but I was reading a book lent to me a few months back about Mike McTigue 'A bloody canvas'.
There was lots about Battling Siki in it because of the fight between them and because he came to Ireland during a time of obvious political upheaval.I found the book decent as almost any boxing book where I can read quotes from newspapers etc.
Battling Siki figures prominently in the book and he had some character in the face of the racism he endured have a look online to see if it may help in what you are looking for.
