His life seemed to spiral with an increased amount of drink and drugs as part of his daily routines. The first whiff of a lead came from Eamonn’s partner Courtney, who spoke to cops about her previous relationship. Ms Magee said: 'We were relieved to hear his plea, but when we were told how long he'd be likely to spend in prison, it didn't feel like justice.

Gibson is a journalist whose work appears regularly in 'The Guardian', 'The Belfast Telegraph' and 'Boxing Monthly', amongst many others. Magee's three older brothers were also boxers with two of them, Terry Magee and Noel Magee, having careers as professional boxers.

The blurb on the back of my book, The Lost Soul of Eamonn Magee, is a direct quote from the man himself.

Listen, I've been beaten with baseball bats, I've had my throat slashed, I've been kidnapped and exiled out of the country.

That first conversation only lasted a couple of ours but soon I was spending entire days with Eamonn, his family and his limited but close circle of friends as I worked to gain his trust.Magee's first twelve fights took place in a variety of locations such as the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, US and England and against a variety of opposition including journeymen such as Steve McGovern, Kevin McKillan and Karl Taylor as well as future NABF Welter and Light Middleweight title holder Teddy Reid.

Magee tells a chilling story of how, during internment raids in the 1970s, he and his three brothers would be turned out of the two beds they shared. After speaking to a local Sinn Fein councillor who asked for a briefing on what had happened, John took an unprecedented step.

When the promising boxer was brutally stabbed to death, investigators had no evidence, motive or suspect, but at the eleventh hour they made a breakthrough. Within twelve months Magee had won two fights both by third round stoppages including winning the Irish Light Welterweight Title both the arranged rematch with Burke which was set for 12 September 1999 at the York Hall, Bethnal Green in London again for the Commonwealth Light Welterweight Title.
