This is Up Front with Simon Jordan. A new show brought to you by William Hill that pulls no punches and tells it EXACTLY like it is.
This week we are joined by Johnny Nelson, this country’s longest ever cruiserweight world champion who experienced years of self-doubt, ridicule and hardships before reaching the summit. Years of tutelage turned under the late, great Brendan Ingle took him from a scared kid in a man’s body to a British boxing great. Now a mainstay of Sky Sport’s boxing coverage Johnny joins the show to discuss his unique career whilst discussing the future of boxing.
