The father and trainer of Britain's greatest ever boxer, Joe Calzaghe, talks candidly about his extraordinary life from the streets of Sardinia to the top of the world. He is the genius behind the genius. Enzo Calzaghe never fought in the ring, but he still turned his son Joe into one of the top ten boxers on the planet - a World Champion with a record of 46 unbeaten fights. Now Enzo tells the extraordinary behind-the-scenes story of his flamboyant career and the making of a fight legend. It's much more than a round-by-round tale of ropes and gloves, and grit and glory. For the first time Enzo opens the family album and discloses intimate details of his bruising upbringing in Sardinia, where the Mafia lurked on every corner and his father practised 'tough love'. He talks of fleeing Italy to hitch-hike and busk his way around Europe. He charts his improbable rise from slaving as a waiter cum-cook in a seaside restaurant to become backing guitarist for chart stars such as Edwin Starr and Bucks Fizz. And he reveals how a single announcement on a bare railway station platform changed his life forever. Enzo Calzaghe's autobiography - written with "Sunday Times" boxing correspondent Brian Doogan - will be one of the most talked about sports titles of 2009. Not only does it provide a unique insight into the father and son relationship that conquered boxing, but also shows how the heart and determination of one self-made man serves as an example for anyone who craves success and is prepared to overcome near-impossible odds to achieve it. 'I'm a life fighter,' he says. This book proves it.
