We will be covering all the main fights, the stories, characters, outrageous acts, fairy tales, inventions and one or two lies as well.

We start in 1960 with a kid called Cassius Clay and a deposed champion called Floyd Patterson and an improbable world champion called Ingemar Johansson. These were heady days.
