Description

Drink, drugs, depression, sex scandals, financial meltdowns and health issues are some of the fights British boxers have faced once they've quit. A Champion's Last Fight examines just why and exactly some of Britain's greatest boxers have self-destructed in retirement, and tells the stories of former champions who've struggled outside the ring.
