James Quinn McDonagh was born in Ireland in 1967. He spent the early years of his life living the traditional way of Irish Travellers, in a horse-drawn barrel-top wagon, sleeping in a tent by the side of the road. As the head of a clan, James was forced to combat constant opposition both inside and outside the traveling community and became a true proper fighter.

James Quinn is an undefeated heavyweight bare-knuckle boxing champion who truly made his way up the ranks with a remarkable life story. He has since then moved on to find and train up and coming bare-knuckle fighters.

James is the star of the acclaimed movie “Knuckle” which explores the history of bare-knuckle boxing and traveling fighters. He is also an accomplished writer of a book by the same name. “Knuckle” the book is published by Harper Collins Publishing.

James Quinn McDonagh has settled in the UK where he lives with his wife and two sons. He is a community leader and an inspiration to fighters everywhere. James has assembled TEAM UK on the show and is also the team’s conditioning coach and trainer.
