About this deal

Superbly illustrated throughout, this book is a great conversation piece, fascinating to flick through, and almost unputdownable once you have. The boxing promoter/manager/entrepreneur escaped death twice: in December 1988, he cancelled his seat on PanAm flight 103 which was blown up over Lockerbie.

On one level it’s the gritty saga of the rise of a Labour-supporting plucky young buck from an Islington council flat, albeit a plucky young buck with sufficient underworld connections for a Crimewatch special.

But it was the struggle to break the stranglehold with which a few key promoters ran the boxing business that really made Warren's name. In Frank and Fearless, Warren pulls no punches, taking us behind the scenes into a world of blood and sweat, and intense relationships that all too often end in tears. Ted Heath might have been castigated too, but Warren leaves Heath snoring soundly in London Arena’s front row, during the former prime minster’s unlikely attendance at a Duran Duran concert.

Warren's battle with King made headline news on both sides of the Atlantic, as what had seemed boxing's "dream team" suddenly turned into a nightmare of lawsuits. Under Warren's careful stewardship, Frank Bruno, Naseem Hamed, Joe Calzaghe, Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan and Tyson Fury all became world champions. From his humble beginnings in North London, he has created a multi-million-pound business empire as one of the UK's most high-profile promoters, staging shows that have featured some of the world's biggest names, such as Frank Sinatra.
