“It was the most powerful moment of any Life Stories episode ever,” Piers said during an appearance on The One Show.
“We’re up to 100 shows in this series but that one, that moment next week, you have these two great warriors who fought and Michael Watson – he nearly died, he was in a coma for 40 days, in a wheelchair for six days. Now made an extraordinary comeback.
“It was so touching to see these two great men, who’d fought each other for the world title and then been defined for what happened in the aftermath, sharing that emotion together. It was spine-tingling.”
