Eamonn Magee is widely known as one of the most gifted fighters. Yet, despite becoming a world champion in 2003, such was his genius that it will always be considered a career unfulfilled.
Women, drink, drugs, gambling, depression and brandishes with the law took Eamonn away from his craft. Then there was the violence; a throat slashed; an IRA bullet in the calf; a savage leg-shattering beating. Wherever Eamonn went, trouble was not far behind.
