British professional boxer, nicknamed The Force, who competed from 1984 to 1991. He held the Commonwealth middleweight title from 1989 to 1991, and challenged three times for a world title between 1990 and 1991. Watson's career was cut short as a result of near-fatal injury sustained during a loss to Chris Eubank for the WBO super-middleweight title in 1991.
Watson sued the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) for negligence and won damages reputedly of around £1 million.
In February 2017 Watson and his carer, Lennard Ballack, were victims of a carjacking in Chingford, London. During the attack, Ballack had ammonia sprayed in his face and was beaten, whilst Watson was dragged along the road when the car was driven off, unable to escape. Watson suffered flashbacks and seizures after the event. The two attackers were later sentenced to 16 years for their part in the attack and other crimes.
Sy Scholfield quotes from Michael Watson's Story: The Biggest Fight by Michael Watson and Steve Bunce (Hachette UK, 2011): "I appeared on the morning of 15 March 1965 at Mother's Hospital, Clapton." A birth time of 6 AM is speculative.
