Early years

Jimmy was born and brought up in Wapping, East London as the son of a docker. Jimmy started off his amateur boxing career in 1963 at the Broad Street Boxing Club in Stepney. He then went on to start his professional boxing career in 1973 as a Featherweight.

Acting career

After getting frustrated with boxing, Jimmy got involved in acting with the director Ron Peck in the film Empire State. With the success of the film, this prompted his passion for acting and writing. Shortly afterwards Jimmy wrote the one man play entitled 'The Wapping Assassin' after his own life story. He has subsequently appeared in major films such as The Krays and Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Revolver.
