Undisputed: The Life and Times of Ken Buchanan

Ken Buchanan reached the peak of his sport when he unexpectedly grabbed the World Lightweight boxing title. Soon he was topping the bill at Madison Square Garden, above the likes of Muhammad Ali. His was a sparkling boxing career, but its decline was a steep one, and Ken struggled to cope with failure as his star waned. Undisputed: The Life and Times of Ken Buchanan tells the story of a working-class Scots lad who savoured internal fame, and struggled to cope during his later life. Told through the eyes of friends and family, and using some remarkable footage, it captures Ken in his mid 1970s as he reconciles success and failure and reflects on both.
