“The participants leave the stage to polite applause. After nearly two hours of sitting quietly, listening to these people speaking, in a rather detached manner, about fighting an industry that finances slave-trading, drug trafficking and illegal arms trade, Declan Hill takes center-stage by storm. He’s a journalist, probably the world’s foremost expert on match-fixing and corruption in sports. He’s also an amateur boxer, and his movements on stage show that he’s ready for battle.”
