Boxing manager and promoter Steve Wood found his way into the sport by forming a friendship with 'The Viking' Steve Foster Sr.
A successful business man in his own right, Steve has managed the likes of John Murray, Jamie Moore and Josh Warrington and has seen the sport from all angles.
He's lost money on small hall shows but has been ringside supporting his fighters in huge domestic and international clashes.
Here he talks about the fighters who have come and gone, his hopes for the future, getting shot at and much more besides.
