BOXING legend Frank Bruno is set to visit Chipping Sodbury to talk about his battles inside and outside the ring.

The former WBC world heavyweight champion will be interviewed on stage in the town hall, with VIP ticket holders able to meet him after the show.

Organised by South West Live, the event takes place on Saturday, January 27, and tickets are already selling well.

Producer James Murden said: "Frank has been through an incredible amount and is an inspiration to a lot of people, It's an honour to bring him to my home town.”

Bruno became world champion in 1995 by defeating Oliver McCall, leading to an open-top bus tour of London that brought thousands of fans out to cheer him on.

But in 2003 he was diagnosed as having bipolar disorder and he has used his well documented condition to help with the stigma attached to mental health and improve standards of care for those with mental health problems.
