The Farr family

Thomas George Farr (12 March 1913 – 1 March 1986) was one of the most famous Welsh and British boxers of all time.
A musical based on Farr's career, Contender, was composed by Mal Pope and premiered at the United Nations building in New York, followed by a season at Swansea's Grand Theatre.[7] A theme of the musical is that Farr's lack of success in the USA resulted wholly from his refusal to co-operate with fight-fixing mobsters and bookmakers.
