Herbie Hide - Nothing But Trouble : My Story Hardback
by Herbie Hide
From his humble beginnings in Nigeria, Herbie has overcome the odds to become one of the most recognisable and exciting stars of his sport.
His explosive style has seen him knock out all but two of his opponents while his willingness to meet dangerous fighters head-on has also been cause for one or two dramatic defeats.
Herbie's combative style has earned him the nickname of the 'Dancing Destroyer'.
Love him or hate him, there's no denying he's a man who packs one hell of a punch...Outside the ring, Herbie is nothing if not combustible.
His tear-ups at press conferences with Michael Bentt and Danny Williams have made the headlines, as has his treatment at the hands of Audley Harrison at the York Hall in London. His colourful life outside of the ring has seen him run up against gangsters and con-men and more than one brush with the long arm of the law - while his family life has been blighted by tragedy with the loss of his younger brother through leukaemia. Here, Herbie tells it as it is, about the early days as the only black kid in a Norfolk boarding school, his short but successful stint as an amateur pugilist, and his career-defining fights against some of the toughest opposition the international boxing world could muster.
He's not always been Mr Popular, but everybody wants to know about him.
This is his explosive story...
