Overview:John Davison: Little Man, Big Heart - John Davison was 25 years old and going nowhere.

Davison went on to win the WBC International Featherweight title in only his eleventh bout and successful defended it twice. He established himself as one of the top featherweight boxers in the world. In 1992, he captured the British Featherweight Title, enduring a shattered jaw in the process. This victory offered him the chance that he had long been denied - the right to be called Champion of the World. He was scheduled to fight the Colombian Ruben 'The Hurricane' Palacio for the WBO Featherweight Title in 1993 but was to follow, was to destroy the careers of both men and shake the world of boxing to its very foundations...
