Legendary boxer Michael Watson, MBE, chats to Caroline Monk in latest episode of Variety Vodcast

In the latest episode of Variety Vodcast, boxing legend Michael Watson, MBE, chats to Caroline Monk about his childhood, his early boxing career, and the serious brain injury he sustained during a world title fight with Chris Eubank in 1991, which cut his career tragically short. In a deeply moving conversation, Michael demonstrates the same strength of spirit he once showed in the ring, and shares how his faith has fuelled his remarkable recovery. As a vocal campaigner for disabled sport, and our newest Celebrity Sports Ambassador, Michael also expresses his great delight at having an opportunity to inspire the young people Variety works with to achieve their sporting dreams.

The Variety Vodcast series throws a spotlight on some of the charity's wonderful Celebrity Ambassadors, exploring their growing up years, how they got to where they are now, and what supporting Variety means to them.

As Variety’s Celebrity Manager for many years, Caroline Monk is uniquely placed to get to the heart of what inspires some of the UK’s most high-profile stars to support Variety’s work with disabled and disadvantaged children, and to tease out their fascinating life stories.
