Professional boxing in the UK during the 1980's & 90's was dominated by the big time promoters & managers Mickey Duff, Harry Levene, Jarvis Astaire and Terry Lawless and their BBC television contracts, until Frank Warren came along and challenged the establishment backed by ITV. Next on the scene was Barry Hearn with his SKY connections and amongst them arose Frank Malony backed by the fruadster financier Rodger Levett.
