Every so often, we enter a clearing - the moment when we break through the undergrowth of daily choices and are faced with the realisation that we have the time and space to make a life decision that will take us in a new direction. These clearings can be purposefully crafted or forced upon us by destiny. Adam Booth found himself in this position after breaking his leg during a game of football in 1991, just as he was about to turn professional under Mickey Duff following an amateur career that saw him win 30 out of 36 amateur fights. Sadly, the break robbed him of that dream. Instead, it set him on a path as a trainer of champions.
