Joe Egan endorses Goal50
Former boxer and actor, Joe Egan, was once described by Mike Tyson as 'the toughest white person on the planet.' Joe is a supporter of Goal50.
Joe writes, 'I am proud to have helped Nigel's wonderful charity. So many things in life we take for granted but Goal50 helps so many people that are not so fortunate as others. God bless you all.'
After joining Mike Tyson's training camp in America, the Irish heavyweight's career was cut short by a serious road accident. From then on Egan's career took a dive as he found himself on an attempted murder charge and facing a jail term. Finally back on the streets, Joe managed to rebuild his career and made a successful return to the ring at the age of 38. He later became an actor and sports celebrity.
