Ken Buchanan was one of the greatest boxers ever produced in Britain. He regularly packed out boxing's greatest venue, Madison Square Garden in New York. Indeed, he even topped the bill when Mohammad Ali was on the undercard! But, like so many boxers, things began to go wrong when he started losing - his personal life fell apart and his money drained away. His story is packed with humour and insight about the events of his career, and the effort required to get to the top. It is also a poignant tale of a man who struggled to cope with what happened next, but found redemption in the end.
