A TRIBUTE TO MUHAMMAD ALI (AND MICKY BRENNAN)

For more than a decade I was a boxing writer, covering nearly all of Mike Tyson’s fights for the Daily Telegraph, along with the title fights of Marvin Hagler, Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, and  Lennox Lewis’s ascension to the world heavyweight title. During that time I became good ...

DOGS’ LIVES

Quite a contrast between the lives of these two dogs sleeping in doorways and scavenging for food in Cartagena and these California dogs who have toys to play with, sleep on living room couches and have chicken cooked for them every evening. The only common denominator is that when they’re awa...
