Fighter

by Andy Lee | 26 October 2018

In 2005, at the age of 20, Andy Lee decided he was going to try to make it in the harsh and unforgiving world of professional boxing. Leaving home for the dust and faded glamour of Detroit, over the next ten years, under the guidance of the legendary Emanuel Steward, he set about honing his craft, winning fight after fight, and slowly ascending the professional ranks. Then, in 2012, his star ascendant, Lee suffered two devastating blows in quick succession: defeat in his first world championship bout and the sudden loss of Steward, his guide and confidant. Bereft, his career in jeopardy, the path to redemption would test every hard-won lesson of the previous decade. Fighter is a lyrical and philosophical memoir about resilience, bravery and the wisdom to be found at the limits of human experience. Praise for Andy Lee 'One of the most universally beloved fighters in the game, known for his heart inside the ring and his class outside it.' Donald McRae, The Guardian 'Lee was a good fighter but he's an even better human being.' Pundit Arena 'Andy Lee is one of life's good people. Not too many people get to be an Olympian, a world champion & liked by pretty much everyone they meet. He's a superstar.' Jacqui Hurley 'A true role model for kids sportsmanship and manners and such an articulate speaker.' Niall Kennedy
