About this deal

Most people would make a fuss of little Kelly and Jamie, very recognisable with their bright red hair, because they knew they were the Guv’nor’s children. Fighting to prove his innocence against a minimum sentence of 25 years, Lenny never gave up - and went on to be found not guilty. So much so that he has two bullet wounds in his back, and has been stabbed repeatedly—always from behind.

And his thoughts on a young man who, with friends, got in to a "tussle with a couple of black lads" and swung a knife "a bit too hard" killing him, are shocking. We give people around the world the opportunity to contribute to the circular economy, earn money and protect the planet, by trading their unwanted books and media.And of those there are the occasional few that are so spectacular they propel the subject straight into fame. McLean's first unlicensed boxing match came about as a result of a chance meeting while in his late teens. She has had several short stories published in print and online and was most recently long-listed for the Royal Academy and Pin Drop Short Story Award. Lenny Mclean was a hard bastard, he had a hard if not brutal upbringing in Hoxton - East End of London and emerged as the leading bare knuckle fighter of his time. Although money was scarce and fighting was commonplace, a camaraderie and deep sense of honour and respect remained.

Read more the beginning of the end of the old Cockney way of life and interest in his story has only increased since his passing, inspiring documentaries as well as a feature film, My Name is Lenny. McLean was also described as a "fixer" and a "minder", meaning a bodyguard, for criminals and celebrities including Mike Reid, Boy George, and the casts of television shows such as EastEnders and The Bill. The drama film My Name Is Lenny was released in 2017, featuring Australian actor Josh Helman in the title role, and Michael Bisping as Roy "Pretty Boy" Shaw. McLean, unable to become a licensed boxer due to his violent reputation and lengthy criminal record, entered the world of unlicensed boxing, which, although legal, was not sanctioned by the British Boxing Board of Control.Lenny McLean has been a man who always appeared larger than life to me so I jumped at the chance to hear his story, told his way. Do Not Miss out on this Man's personal account of a life that only the Govener could resite in his very own words. Son, treat kindness with kindness, he pronounced in that gravelly, stentorian tone--an admirable sentiment I thought--and violence with EXTREME violence! In his autobiography, McLean claimed to have competed in almost 4,000 fights over three decades, and said he won the large majority of these. Excellent book couldn’t put it down ,pitty we haven’t got men around like Lenny now the streets would be so saver .
