But his early life was so very different. Aged 15, Eubank was ejected from the last in a long line of care homes and was living on the streets. His life was a mess of shoplifting, burglary, drink and drugs from which there seemed no escape. In 1981, in a last-ditch attempt to drag himself from the abyss, he relocated to New York with his mother. Here he started boxing, aged 16, graduated from school, attended church and quit drink and drugs; within two years he had won the prestigious Spanish Golden Gloves Amateur title.
Some of the incredible experiences Chris recalls in his autobiography include: his involvement in a car crash which saw a man die, how he became Lord of the Manor of Brighton and bought the old Pier, his reaction to Michael Watsons horrific injuries sustained in their 1992 super-middleweight contest and subsequent partial recovery, his visits to Mike Tyson in prison, his relationship with Nelson Mandela and Muhammad Ali, his passion for his truck (the largest in Europe), and his legendary sartorial elegance and extravagance.
Chris life outside of boxing is even more enigmatic and compelling. His internationally-renowned persona has made him a genuine household name, crowned Sportsman of the Decade, repeated winner of several Best Dressed Man awards and figure-head for many high profile advertising campaigns.
Followed by Louis Theroux, harassed by the media and first to be voted out of the Comic Relief Big Brother house, he is unquestionably one of the worlds most famous and engaging personalities; his story, like the man himself, is gripping and unique. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I really like and get this honest, good man. I'd like to think I'd have acted with the same integrity as him in his position. However, I think I'd have fallen short. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Jon Diamond
