Description - Give Me A Ring by Mickey Vann

Involved in more than 350 championship fights - over 100 of them world title fights - Mickey Vann is one of the world's top boxing referees. He is also one of the most controversial. Appointed as Britain's youngest star-grade referee, he found himself in front of the disciplinary committee following his first fight. The biggest night of his career - the "Battle of Britain" world heavyweight clash between Frank Bruno and Lennox Lewis in Cardiff - saw him back on the mat for a four-letter outburst heard by the world, and he was accused of taking #25,000 from Don King to fix a fight. "Give Me A Ring" covers Vann's professional refereeing career in all its glory and rewinds to his early life. The son of knife thrower and showman Hal Denver and the grandson of "The Silver King", who included the Elephant Man in his freakshows, Vann's formative years were spent between a Dickensian foster home and on the road with the circus.
