Along the way, Warren has been assaulted in a hotel room by the formidable Mike Tyson and gone toe to toe in a court room with his erstwhile partner, the flamboyant Don King. The Krays are dismissed as “paedophiles who preyed on young boys”, while “Champagne socialist” Mick Hucknall, ex-MP Tom Watson and “that prick” Kelvin MacKenzie may want to look away.

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. Frank Warren has spent forty years working with boxing's most colourful and controversial characters. Under Warren's careful stewardship, Frank Bruno, Naseem Hamed, Joe Calzaghe, Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan and Tyson Fury all became world champions.

Neither are boxers Barry McGuigan (“another who disappointed me”) and Chris Eubank, whose reputation Warren destroys with one hideous anecdote, while Frank Bruno’s ex-wife Laura is “an absolute pain”. 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. In his long-awaited autobiography, he reflects on the battles he had to win to reach the top and remain there, not least the battle to stay alive after he was shot at point-blank range in an attempted assassination in 1989. However, boxing is only part of the story that begins on a council estate in 1950s North London, where Warren first learnt how to stand up to bullies.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.
