“I’m an ex kick boxer from many years ago and remember Michael commentating at most of the local fights in Melbourne Australia. It’s amazing to see where he started, the many existing people he has met and is now recognised as one of the best fighting commentators around the world. Thoroughly enjoyed the read and always great seeing a local boy exceed in life and stay humble along the way. Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend.” Tony A, Melbourne

This down-to-earth memoir describes how a bullied fat kid from Melbourne evolved to become an award-winning, international television presenter and sports commentator. Michael Schiavello, the overweight son of an immigrant factory worker, was taunted and bullied at school and was told he’d never amount to anything. By his late teens he knew he only had two things going for him: his deep booming voice and a burning ambition to prove his critics wrong. 

Good Night Irene, a catch cry Michael would become well known for as a commentator, describes how Michael became one of the most highly sought after sports broadcasters on US cable networks, and relates many interesting stories about the people and celebrities he met along the way, including a gun-toting Steven Seagal, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Diego Maradona, Hulk Hogan, George Foreman, Dana White, Drake, Wasim Akram, Cathy Freeman and more.
