Gareth Thomas and Craig Doyle are joined by retired professional boxer and former heavyweight champion Frank Bruno. Throughout his life and career, Frank has faced challenges and fought against stigma surrounding mental health, which led him to start the Frank Bruno Foundation. In this episode, Frank talks about the importance of being respectful, keeping calm and staying in control both inside and outside the ring. Gareth, Frank and Craig discuss the negative perceptions around issues such as mental health, and how Frank manages daily life outside of boxing while dealing with his bi-polar disorder.
