Watch out for the programme that Matchroom Sport have put together marking the 20-year anniversary of the epic return between Michael Watson and Chris Eubank.
Next week at the Dorchester Hotel in the West End there will be a gala night to honour Watson and that's when the documentary will first be screened.
Having watched a sneak preview today, I'm sure that there'll be a few tears shed in the audience on Tuesday night.
For those who are unfamiliar with Watson's boxing career, that fateful September evening and then Michael's heroic fight back from life threatening injuries, it should make riveting viewing.
And for those who lived through the drama expect to be taken right back - through the archive footage and the heartfelt quotes.
Watson fought in a great middleweight era domestically. There was Nigel Benn, Chris Eubank, Herol 'Bomber' Graham and Rod Douglas - all exceptional talents.
My first real experience of the dangers involved in boxing came at Wembley in October 1989 - as an 18th birthday present my dad got me tickets to watch Douglas put his unbeaten record on the line against the veteran Graham.
Douglas was the only man to beat Nigel Benn in the amateurs and the feeling was that he might be catching the Sheffield southpaw at the right time.
Manager Mickey Duff didn't make too many mistakes but Graham toyed with his inexperienced rival for nine painful rounds. Douglas suffered a blood clot to the brain and never boxed again.
All of those exciting British middleweights were touched by tragedy. Benn of course endured the trauma of that brutal battle with Gerald McClellan - where the American suffered permanent damage.
Brain injuries are thankfully a rarity in boxing and the sport has become safer in recent years. New medical procedures were put in place in the aftermath of the second Eubank-Watson clash, procedures that have saved lives. Boxing owes Michael Watson.
The Islington man's life has never been the same since the 21st September 1991, nor will it ever be. It isn't easy being reminded of just how vibrant and full of hope the young Watson looked in those old clips.
But two decades on Michael does not incite sympathy or pity. The Michael Watson of today is one of the most content and peaceful people you could ever hope to meet. If I had to describe him in one word it would be serene.
He is buoyed by a strong faith and a sense of purpose. Michael is an inspiration, not because of all he's been through but because he seems almost grateful for the extraordinary tests that he's faced. The tears will be of an audience humbled.
The one hour special will be broadcast on Sky Sports next Thursday and Ringside will feature footage from the star-studded Park Lane event.

It was a weekend of debate-provoking decisions.
First Jamie Cox took the Commonwealth Light-Middleweight title against Ghana's Obodai Sai, then the following night Paul McCloskey beat Breidis Prescott in a world title eliminator.
I thought that Cox was behind on points after twelve rounds but should have been disqualified anyway for low blows against Sai. That doesn't mean that I don't rate Cox. Jamie was a terrific amateur and has some beautiful skills - although he doesn't really box to his strengths yet.
Boxing - amateur and pro - is about hitting and not being hit and Cox seemed to switch his brain off against Sai, was too wild and got hit with silly shots. I hope he learns the lessons.
My card had Prescott one up at the final bell against McCloskey but it was close and to my mind contentious rather than controversial.
I'd also say that McCloskey's performance put to bed any claims that the Dungiven southpaw was about to be knocked out by Amir Khan when he was stopped on a cut in April. The bravery and durability that Paul showed on Saturday proved that, without the cut, Amir would have done very well to halt the Irishman.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Prescott move up to welterweight now, he boxes like he is concerned that weight-making has drained him.
On the Belfast undercard I also thought that local hope Marco McCullough was desperately unlucky to lose his unbeaten record on points to Dai Davies.I felt for Marco but it's also hard to begrudge the Welsh veteran a bit of overdue good fortune. Davies has been matched very hard throughout his career.
Apparently Carl Froch has been sparring with Tony Bellew and is very impressed with the Everton puncher's power. Nathan Cleverly will be a firm favourite when he defends against his arch rival but if Bellew does connect clean, we'll certainly find out a lot more about the new WBO champion from Wales. Cleverly is a real talent but has unfortunately won British, Commonwealth, European and World championships all in vacant title clashes. Both still have something to prove.
I'm really looking forward to Prizefighter on Thursday. It was good to catch up with Takaloo when he came back with a routine four-rounder the other week alongside another contender in Big Brother's JJ Bird. Takaloo was part of that recent era of outstanding domestic light-middleweights that included Wayne Alexander, Richard Williams, Steve Roberts and Anthony Farnell.
The Margate-based Iranian sensationally knocked out Farnell but suffered the same fate against Alexander. I hope he does well but history shows that veterans often struggle with the fast-paced format - think Danny Williams, Herbie Hide, Dean Francis, Junior Witter, Robin Reid...
Many experts are talking up the chances of Peter Vaughan - a real crowd pleasing type who is guided by the respected Jim Evans.
The Maidenhead manager spends much of his time in the gym that he's built in his garden, watching the progress of his fighters from a special comfy chair reserved just near the ring.
Evans is now in his mid 70's but had more than 200 amateur bouts as a youth, both his sons also boxed and the sport has been his passion for decades.
He's had some good champions too, including Geoff McCreesh and Michael Sprott, who famously knocked out Audley Harrison. Sprott and Patrick Mendy have also both won Prizefighter tournaments under Evans - if Vaughan wins then it will be Jim's third success in the ground-breaking competition.
