BOXING: Michael Watson.
Board secretary Simon Block presented a special award to Watson, who has recovered miraculously from brain damage after his 1991 world supermiddleweight title fight against Chris Eubank.
Block said: 'Michael is the bravest boxer I've known and he touched the hearts of the world in his marathon charity walk.'
Manchester's Ricky Hatton, the WBU world lightwelterweight champion, was named Britain's Boxer of the Year, while Sir Henry Cooper took the inaugural Nat Basso Award, donated by the son of Manchester's famous promoter and matchmaker.
