Despite the book Twelve Grand and the three-part program it subsequently inspired (called The Gambler being repeated on More4 at midnight on March 3 or 4 I have been told), the one thing he kept completely in check was the betting. As a result he was an amazing tipster on boxing, something I benefited from on occasion as often he knew more than the bookies and he could spot where the value lay. He was a truly charismatic guy with an incredible intelligence and people loved him, but things just went downhill in later years. Such a shame because he was such a talent in so many ways.
thank you for sharing that information sir! it truly is a big loss to are aspiring writers like myself , rip sir!
