Description

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. More recently, Warren masterminded Mike Tyson's challenge to Julius Francis, which caused another storm of publicity.

In an era spanning forty years, Hall of Fame boxing promoter and manager Frank Warren has worked with some of the biggest fighters in boxing history. Recently acquired by Little, Brown Book Group, Constable publishes a diverse range of bestselling fiction and non-fiction titles.

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”.

Frank Warren has spent forty years working with boxing's most colourful and controversial characters. Unafraid to blow his own horn (“I’m the most successful manager of fighters this country has ever had, as well as the most successful promoter”), some of Warren’s claims are risible, such as the suggestion he’s never had “a sniff” of a fixed fight, or after detailing his charity work at exhausting length, “I don’t do things for the glory, which is just as well because I haven’t had any”.

Armed (as it were) with little more than an eye for both a boxer and, more crucially, a boxing deal, Warren became an extremely wealthy Conservative-supporting adult and the owner of a Hertfordshire mansion. 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. 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. 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. Naseem Hamed, Frank Bruno, Mike Tyson, Joe Calzaghe, Nigel Benn, Steve Collins, Chris Eubank, Amir Khan and Ricky Hatton are some of the iconic names he has promoted during his career.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. 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. Biography: In an era spanning forty years, Hall of Fame boxing promoter and manager Frank Warren has worked with some of the biggest fighters in boxing history. 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. Superbly illustrated throughout, this book is a great conversation piece, fascinating to flick through, and almost unputdownable once you have.

The story of my life would be a bloody sight shorter if the man who tried to murder me outside the Broadway Theatre in Barking on a winter's evening in 1989 had succeeded.Descriptions of skulduggery in 60s north London, involving his Uncle Bob being sent down with gangster Frankie Fraser for knifing the “horrible bastard” Jack Spot, and associates such as Moishe Blueball (so nicknamed because he had one discoloured testicle), segue seamlessly into Warren overturning the complacent boxing establishment. uk/landing-page/orion/orion-company-information/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Orion Publishing Group Limited. However, while he declares “I know with cast-iron certainty who it was”, he seems not to have shared this perhaps crucial information with, say, the police. 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. However, Warren seems not to favour too many people and the score-settling escalates to industrial levels akin to Father Ted’s Golden Cleric acceptance speech.
