The popular boxing legend gave an insightful, informative, humourous and honest appraisal of his glittering career (warts and all).

From the highlights to the low lights it was a no holds barred show dotted with anecdotal moments of his time in and out of the ring.

He talked about his boxing career from starting out to becoming one of Britain’s most loved sports personalities to the downside of his mental health problems.

And his much loved enthusiastic chuckle was littered throughout the show which was compered and supported by Liverpudlian comedian and entertainer Jed Stone.
