Interview: Jeff Fenech, Boxing Trainer & Legend - 8th January 2004

Jeff Fenech held a press conference at the Powerhouse Museum, as part of 'Sport - more than heroes and legends'.

The memorable interview conducted by Peter FitzSimons, was held just days after Fenech having been attacked by thugs outside his restaurant at Brighton Le Sands.

Jeff was in good spirits, and there was a positive vibe, helped along by Jeff's upbeat and honest attitude and Peter's excellent interview, which also included questions fielded from the press (and boxing "hard cores") that were present.

Fenech fans will be glad to hear that Jeff has released a new DVD, in conjunction with Sky Channel and Graham McNeice Productions. After the official press conference, Fenech was on hand to sign autographs and take part in photo opportunities with the press and his many supporters.

Sport: more than heroes and legends is a celebration of the great sporting history of Australia. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re an athlete, a fan, a coach, a history buff, an administrator or a sideline mum. Over 500 items are on display, with the most significant being loaned from the MCG’s Australian Gallery of Sport and Olympic Museum. Objects also come from the New South Wales Hall of Champions, private and corporate collections and the Powerhouse Museum’s stores, featuring treasured objects from the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

The collection of work took over 4 years to collate and compile in order for the Australian public to be able to enjoy these treasures all in one place.
