Roy Pretty Boy Shaw

Roy Shaw

Roy Shaw is a former unlicensed boxer, convicted armed robber and catergory 'A' prisoner. A well respected member of London's underworld Roy Shaw is now an author and businessman.

Shaw did an armed robbery in Dartford which, for the exception of the great train robbery, was the biggest in Britain at the time. Roy was grassed up by a so called friend and did 15 years for it.


He turned his hand to unlicensed boxing after the boxing board of control refused him a license to fight. The trilogy of fights he had against Lenny Mclean are considered the bloodiest of the 20th century.
