Michael Norby became captivated with boxing after watching fellow Irishman Barry McGuigan defeat Eusebio Pedroza for the WBA featherweight world title in 1985. He began his journalism career covering news and politics in his hometown of Derry City, Northern Ireland and wrote occasional boxing stories when, as he puts it, "the sports editor would allow me to." Michael began writing for SecondsOut in the summer of 2006 and lives in Boston, USA.
