An intimate, revealing look at the macho world of British boxing, the “gentleman’s” sport, told to us by BBC Boxing commentator, the infamous Ronnie Brixton. But for all the testosterone inherent in his banter, Ronnie holds a secret. A contrasting and provocative view of gender issues.
Top British Boxing Presenter and Commentator Ronnie Brixton presents “Best of British Boxing,” an evening with the popular media personality. Four-time winner of the coveted British Sports Broadcasters Association (BSBA) Golden Microphone, Brixton promises an overview and breakdown of the great heavyweight matches of the late 20th and early 21st century, an insider’s view of the Sport of Gentlemen, and his personal history growing up as the son of the late, much revered trainer George “King George” Brixton. Ronnie will take your questions, and if time allows, address the recent viral video regarding “the woman.”
