Lacking in a bit of depth but an honest account of the Cobras life.I would have liked a bit more detail.

Don't waste your money, this is ego - driven garbage. Not a good read.

What this book lacks in sophistication of grammar, vocabulary and punctuation, it more than makes up for with a very easy to read account of Carl's career and life. It is rich in humour, and delivers a candid description and analyses of the fight game, getting the balance right between too much detail and not enough.

There wasn't a dull moment in the book, a lot like Carl's fights! Go read it.

Fresh off the back of Carls masterful dipslay against Glen Johnson I finally got round to reading his story, and thankfully it reads as fluently as he performs in the ring. As an avid reader of sports autobiographies I would put this on a par with Jamie Carraghers in that you get a great personal story mixed with considered and uncomprimising opinions for the sport that he sacrifices so much for. For example the anticipated section on the "what could have been" Joe Calzaghe fight is well argued without an air of sour grapes. Also I don't think anyone could read the chapter on the Kessler fight and not genuinely think several factors worked against him that night (Re-match soon me-thinks!) . Overall a very satisfying book and should fill in the gaps nicely for boxing fans playing catch up on the sensation that is the Cobra.

Favourite quotes: "Joe, if ur reading his, you should have fought me, but deep down you probably know this.".... And second... "I fell in love, properly in love" can't blame u mate, who wouldn't @RachelCordingly is a stunner.

Congrats on ur success; for Rocco, good luck for your next bairn, and please spark Kessler out. Good as he is that crown is yours.
