A tale of one man's triumph against almost insurmountable odds... Lenny McLean was the deadliest bare-knuckle fighter Britain has ever seen. He had dear, powerful friends, but he also had terrible enemies. But Lenny was also a warm, huge-hearted grizzly bear of a man, whose main weakness was an overwhelming desire to put the welfare of his mates ahead of his own well-being. In this extraordinary autobiography he tells how the Mafia flew him to New York to take on their greatest bare-knuckle boxer in a multi-million pound illicit challenge bout. The Mafia's man lasted less than three minutes. When the IRA fronted up a London gang in a money-laundering scam, Lenny was brought in to intimidate the terrorists. The IRA, not surprisingly, backed off... After deciding to retire from the violent life, Len turned his hand to acting, debuting in the hit series The Knock. Parts in The Fifth Element and, famously, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
