Description
Information
Adored by men and women alike Billy was the biggest boxoffice attraction in British boxing history whose record for the number of successive Wembley sellouts has never been beaten. He had a sumptuous home in Belgravia filled with champagne and fine wines. He drove topoftherange sports cars. And as one of the most famous faces in the land he revelled in all the Swinging Sixties had to offer including the company of beautiful women. When his boxing days were over after fighting Henry Cooper for the British title Billy continued to live the way he had fought fast and furious with no punches pulled. He became a millionaire then nearly went broke. He has been married and divorced twice and tragically widowed. Now married for the fourth time the famous smile is back. Billys story of his exceptional exhilarating life written in collaboration with Robin McGibbon is an enthralling read. Disarmingly candid the cheerful Cockney bares his soul revealing the triumphs and tragedies in and out of the ring that he always kept hidden behind the cheery smile. It is a riveting uplifting story of an East End kid with an unquenchable lust for fun who never wanted to fight but whose bravery and engaging personality made him the richest most popular fighter of his generation.
