Default Johnny Nelson-Hard road to glory

Not sure if this is the right place or not but im mid way through Johnnys autobiography and can't physically put this down, very good read, proving that no matter what you can achieve your dreams, got a massive respect for Johnny now.

He is a decent commentator ,still has that impressive physique, but he bored the shit out of me when he boxed, he was in loads of stinkers.

I know the fights were very poor but the bloke commands alot of respect for chasing his dreams when many would of given up.

I read it in a single day a few months back. It was nothing special, fairly lightweight stuff.

His commentary is as boring as his fights were.

I've met the guy, and I love him as a man and a human being.

I told him to his face he put me through the worst fight I have EVER seen. He laughed and took it on the chin like a champ.

Great, great guy.

You are in the wrong place. If you cannot physically put a book down, you need to see a Doctor, pretty sharpish, as you might of had a stroke...
