Fight For Your Life : The must-read, astonishingly revealing memoir with life lessons from the UK’s favourite boxer Hardback



***THE MUST-READ AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ONE OF THE GREATEST BRITISH BOXERS EVER – LAUGH-OUT-LOUD FUNNY, INSPIRATIONAL AND BRUTALLY HONEST***'It's a fascinating read' - Chris Moyles'I cannot recommend it enough - I absolutely tore through this.

Fight For Your Life is not a normal Sports autobiography – it is much more than just that – it is very personal and very open and honest’ - TalkSPORT'An absolutely amazing book' - Alison Hammond, ITV This Morning'Some people are born to be sports stars.

I wasn't one of them. I was born to be . . . actually what was I born to be? Probably, like most Asian kids growing up in the late Nineties, a doctor, or a teacher.

At a push I might have been a cricketer. A boxer? Come off it! No Asian lad did that sort of thing. Hanging up my gloves has given me the opportunity to reflect not just on my career but on who I am and the kind of person I want to be.

Whoever that is, I just hope they get a few less slaps to the face!

Boxing has only ever been part of the storyline. Whether it be winning an Olympic medal at 17, death threats from Al-Qaeda, gunpoint robbery, family fallouts, marriage to a New York socialite, three kids, a reality show, a money pit wedding hall, or walking through a flood and earthquake devastated Pakistan, I'm struggling to think of a quiet day.

That means a lot of lessons hard-learned - and here, in my autobiography, you'll notice that I try to pass a few on here.

I've become a teacher after all!'
