Is there anything about his civil partnership with Smith in it?

It is the only book I've ever read more than once in my life (apart from the text I had to study for my Higher English...) and I have about 250 books on my shelfs. Brilliant book, inspirational.

If it's as good as his fights it should be thrilling.

There's an IT bloke in my work who is the spit of Nelson and everytime I see him I have to stop myself from calling him Johnny

He's actually the brother of that Adebola footballer

Nelsons book is superb. I asked him once if somebody ACTUALLY did shag his dog. He was well pleased i'd read his book. Things started going downhill mind when he started showing me (and all the women there) the position and speed the man was ****ing his dog in

Top book, top bloke.

He admits his fights were pish and he was a shitebag for most of his career. Refreshingly honest.

Loved it, been struggling to get some kip for ages and this one sent me to sleep quite nicely. Very reminiscent of his career infact, in that sense I'd have to say it was absolutely on the mark.

Yeah during the Wlad vs Haye buildup he said something about him being a boring fighter, so fair play to him for that.

He was a boring fighter but anytime i saw and spoke to him at the Ingles gym he was a good laugh and seemed a top class guy. He liked to wind up the other boxers and he was pretty sharp at it too.

For all you naysayers out there, his book is actually pretty decent. It's better than the pish you'll find in Calzaghe and Hattons.
