Lennox Lewis likes to present a cool exterior. World heavyweight champion, the most successful British boxer of all time, his country's richest sportsman, and yet after two decades in the public eye he remains a reclusive enigma. But beneath the dreadlocks and behind the shades is a highly competitive, opinionated and passionate man who has experienced deep emotional pain and isolation along with all the elation of triumph. His early years in the East End of London saw an uneven mix of security and chaos - six good years with his mother Violet, and six bad years shuttled between aunts and care homes, before finally being re-united with his mum in Kitchener, Canada. His professional career pitted him against opponents inside and outside the ring: Riddick Bowe, Mike Tyson and Don King, before he secured his place at the top of the pile. Now, finally, he has made it and he's ready to take his mother's advice of retirement, marriage, family and a new career as a global entrepreneur. Mama's Boy is a compelling story of success and failure, of love and hatred, betrayal and affirmation, in Britain and America, Canada and Jamaica.
