Author(s): Frank Warren
Boxing has long enjoyed a fiercely devoted following, but in recent years the sport has experienced a surge in popularity, finding even more fans among the wider general public. Huge numbers of viewers are paying to watch fights featuring some of boxing's biggest stars, such as heavyweight champions Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko, and the undefeated welterweight king, Floyd Mayweather.
In a remarkable career that has spanned over thirty-five years, London-born promoter and manager Frank Warren's name has become synonymous with the noble art, and his understanding of the sport and its athletes is perhaps unparalleled.
From modest beginnings as an unlicensed promoter for his second cousin, Lenny 'The Guv'nor' Maclean, Frank has become one of the most influential figures in global boxing. An International Hall of Fame boxing promoter and manager, he has had a ringside seat to the action and has manged and worked with many of the most iconic names in British boxing history: Hamed, Bruno, Tyson, Calzaghe, Benn, Collins, Eubank, Khan and Hatton to name but a few.
This is Frank's story. . .
