JAMIE MOORE: MEET THE FIGHTER’S FIGHTER
Mooresy: The Fighter's Fighter is the life story of one of Britain's best-loved boxers. Progressing through the amateur ranks, Jamie Moore turned pro in 1999 aged 20 and went on to become British, Irish, Commonwealth and European light middleweight champion.
Four shoulder operations and three brain scans prompted him to quit in 2010; but he was soon snapped up by Sky Sports and started training his own stable of champions.
Life was good. But that life was almost permanently taken away from him in August 2014, after being shot at five times in Marbella.
In Mooresy, the full gripping story written in collaboration Paul Zanon, you will discover how ‘The Fighter’s Fighter’:
• Won and defended the British title seven times in total.
• Made history by being the only man in 100 years from Salford to win the Lonsdale belt outright.
• Beat Matthew Macklin in a barbaric 2006 fight rated one of Britain’s best ever domestic dust-ups.
• Was ranked as high as No2 in the world by the WBC at his peak.
• Boasts a professional fight record, 1999-2010, of 32 wins and 5 defeats.
• Was left with over three feet of scarring on his left leg after bullet trauma surgery, and seriously impaired nerve function due to the trail of destruction as a bullet right passed through his thigh.
• Is a proud and active patron of Niamh’s Next Step charity, helping to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds to battle neuroblastoma.
• Is also a mad Manchester United fan, and very proud of his Irish roots.
