"This is the story of a fall from grace – from a successful career as a police officer and a judo champion to incarceration in Dorchester prison. It’s a story about how my skill and talent at fighting became my downfall and how it then put me back on the path to happiness. It’s the improbable, sometimes comical pairing of full-contact boxing and chess, where victory comes as a result of a knock out or check mate. This is my story as a chess prodigy and elite fighter, and how through a combination of the two I overcame my demons."
