Description
Information
Paul Briggs's candid autobiography describes his troubled childhood and teens; his years of railing against both his fighting opponents and the demons ranged against him; and his rise to the top of the WBC light heavyweight rankings.

Paul 'Hurricane' Briggs - from a family of Kiwi fighters - moved to Australia early in his life. By his teens, Paul was already set to become kickboxing world champion.

But Briggs gave kickboxing away. He made a name for himself as a Brisbane DJ and developed an appetite for ecstasy and cocaine. He slipped into crime. Self-loathing took him to the brink of suicide, until fate intervened ...

With the help of American-Indian spiritual healing, he scraped his soul bare and began replenishing it with something he had regarded as a fatuous notion - love. First towards himself, then towards the new woman in his life, who would become his wife and mother to his children. Briggs turned to boxing and spent four years working his way to the top of the WBC rankings.

The transformation of Paul Briggs may not end with him alone. In some capacity, he will inspire change in others, and perhaps the sport of boxing itself.
