Sinopsis: The authorized biography of the Australian boxing legend who has trained six World Champions He's the best loved man in Australian boxing—from training Jeff Fench and Kostya Tszyu to touring with the Kangaroos and appearing on talk back with Alan Jones, Johnny Lewis looms large in Australian sporting life. This is his story. It was the night Jeff Harding came back to the corner at the end of the eleventh, behind on all three judges' cards and bleeding around both eyes, his nose long broken. As Lewis cleaned the cuts he quickly poured everything that was important into his ear. Then he picked him up from his stool with one last instruction: "Go out and come back champion of the world." Over the past 30 years Johnny Lewis has trained six world champions, among them Jeff Fenech, Kostya Tszyu, and yes, Jeff Harding. Yet he is known for much more than that. For a wisdom that stems from his childhood growing up in Erskineville, where he mixed with hustlers and hard men and, in his words, never met a bad man. Now, in his authorized biography, we learn why Johnny Lewis is not only Australia's greatest ever fight trainer, but why he is a winner, and why those around him are winners, as well.
About the Author: Paul Kent is a senior journalist at the Daily Telegraph. Once a dedicated sports writer Paul now writes features and articles on many subjects. Johnny Lewis is unquestionably Australia's most successful trainer.
