Having spent 16 years as a journalist with BBC Sport, I recently became a freelance journalist and author. During my time with the BBC I was an early pioneer of live text commentary and a senior feature writer and interviewer, specialising in boxing but covering pretty much everything, from football to golf to rugby to motorcycling to snooker to darts.
In the field I covered a host of historic sporting events, including Rugby World Cups, the Ashes, Wimbledon, Open golf, Commonwealth and Olympic Games and countless world title fights in boxing.
As a freelance, I have written for ESPN, CNN, Eurosport and Boxing News.
I have written seven books - We Could Be Heroes (released in 2008); Karma Chameleons (2009); Barmy Army: Everywhere We Went (2011); The Hate Game: Benn, Eubank and Boxing's Bitterest Rivalry (2013); Box to Box: From the Premier League to British Boxing Champion; 401: The Extraordinary Story of the Man who Ran 401 Marathons in 401 Days and Changed his Life Forever (2018); Death Row - The Final Minutes (2018).
