Adam Smith, Head of Boxing at Sky Sports, was today signing copies of his book, Beautiful Brutality, at Waterstone’s Leadenhall Market. Adam was joined by his Ringside co-presenter, former World Champion Johnny Nelson.
If you weren’t able to make it, here are some photos from the signing.
Adam has been one of Sky’s main boxing commentators for over 20 years and Beautiful Brutality examines a unique, but little-discussed aspect of boxing – the role that families play in the success, or failure, of many professional boxers. A fighter may enter the ring alone, but boxing is a family business, both financially and emotionally. As a lifelong fan and great advocate of the sport of boxing, no-one is better placed than Adam to reveal the extraordinary stories and extraordinary families caught up in it.
‘Adam has known my family for over twenty years, and has developed utterly unique relationships with
a host of other boxing families. He’s been closer to the fight game than virtually any other journalist or
reporter.’ JOE CALZAGHE
