According to a bio in the East Bourne Herald newspaper: "A 76-year-old Old Town man who set up the Golden Gloves boxing club in Seaside has published two novels after being diagnosed with cancer. Gary Tulley, of Green Street, started boxing with his three brothers in Peckham when he was just five years old.
The married father-of-three had a very successful career in the boxing world and gained his Amateur Boxing Association Licence allowing him to undertake training for up and coming boxers. Later he obtained his Professional Training Licence and worked with Ronnie Davies, well known in the boxing fraternity, as a promoter and manager. His promotions included the international boxing champion Chris Eubank.
Mr Tulley lived in Brighton for many years before moving to Devon for seven years, where he first began writing. He told the Herald, “I took it up for something to do really - to keep myself busy. “I wrote a trilogy. It hasn’t been published but I have been told it would make a very good film.”
It wasn’t until recently, after moving to Eastbourne, that Mr Tulley had two crime thriller novels published by Simon and Shuster ."
