'A Gent' - Widespread Praise For Superb Andy Lee Late Late Show Interview

'A Gent' - Widespread Praise For Superb Andy Lee Late Late Show Interview
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

There are few more universally popular Irish sporting icons than boxer Andy Lee. The Limerick man recently penned an insightful and fascinating autobiography and appeared on RTE's Late Late Show last night to promote the book.

Lee is a former world champion who boxed out of the renowned Kronk Gym in Detroit under esteemed trainer Emanuel Steward. He compared it a Limerick boy receiving a call to play for Alex Ferguson at Man United. This just scratches the surface of his extraordinary story.

A key feature of Lee's success was his wife, Maud, who helped him with his sports psychology and career. Lee spoke openly about their relationship and how it forged.

Me and her, there are so many reasons why we shouldn't be together. She is a Trinity educated classical violinist from south county Dublin and I am a gypsy from Limerick... but our love prevailed.
