The Good Fight

Boxing, ballet and breaking stereotypes

About The Book

In The Good Fight, Harry Garside, Australia’s ballet dancing boxing star, offers a raw and unfiltered account of his journey through sport, unexpected challenges and personal growth. Harry opens up about his remarkable journey with wit and wisdom, and offers a refreshing perspective on masculinity, sharing his struggles, triumphs, and moments of profound self-discovery.

‘Uh oh, here’s another celebrity wanker with a self-help book telling everyone how to live their lives. Don’t worry. It’s not. I can’t think of anything worse to read, let alone write, so I won’t subject you to that kind of book. That’s not what this is and it’s certainly not what anyone needs right now.’

Having won both gold and bronze medals at the Commonwealth and Tokyo Olympic games respectively and playing a starring role at the 2024 Olympics, Harry is one of Australia’s stand out boxing talents. But this isn’t your stock-standard sporting memoir.

Through personal anecdotes and some touches of his own heartfelt poetry, Garside invites readers to see beyond the stereotypes, offering a nuanced exploration of identity, resilience, failing forward and the pursuit of authenticity. An inspiring and thought-provoking read, The Good Fight is a testament to the power of vulnerability and the beauty of embracing one's true self.
