Frank has, however, weathered a number of financial storms in his turbulent career, not least one that followed the shooting incident that almost cost him his life.

More recently, Warren masterminded Mike Tyson's challenge to Julius Francis, which caused another storm of publicity.

The boxing promoter/manager/entrepreneur escaped death twice: in December 1988, he cancelled his seat on PanAm flight 103 which was blown up over Lockerbie.
