A full-scale insider's investigation of British sport's most baffling crimes - the death of boxer Freddie Mills. Former world light heavyweight boxing champion, Mills became a media celebrity and popular hero after his retirement from the ring. In 1965, he was found dead in a Soho alley, shot through the eye with a rifle. The official verdict was suicide - but nearly 30 years later many people in boxing are still convinced that Mills was murdered. Journalist and boxing authority, Tony Van Den Bergh, sifts through the evidence to provide some new insights into the boxer's death.
