In a remarkable career that has spanned over thirty-five years, London-born promoter and manager Frank Warren's name has become synonymous with the noble art, and his understanding of the sport and its athletes is perhaps unparalleled.

An International Hall of Fame boxing promoter and manager, he has had a ringside seat to the action and has manged and worked with many of the most iconic names in British boxing history: Hamed, Bruno, Tyson, Calzaghe, Benn, Collins, Eubank, Khan and Hatton to name but a few.
