Boxer Frank Bruno has said that drug smugglers once threatened to kill him.
He said that Colombian dealers asked him to take cocaine to London.
When Frank, then 20 and in Bogotá, refuses a session, he is told that “crazy things happen to people here”.
The former world heavyweight champion, 60, said: “I knew what he was getting.
“But I said that I was going to be a world champion and if they were planning on having me in it and hoping that nobody would notice then that was wrong.
“I noticed a change in his behavior after that and he smiled uneasily.
“I still sweat thinking about it.
“I was lucky enough to get away with it in one piece — and left with my head and ‘Black and Decker’ where Mother Nature intended.
“I made up my excuse and left. I was looking over my shoulder for the rest of my stay though. I met in the weird scraps of my time in South London – but it was something else.”
