Best known for:
Steve Davis, OBE is an English former professional snooker player.
Known for dominating snooker during the 1980s when he won the World Championship six times and was ranked world number one for seven consecutive seasons.
The Steve Davis legend started over 40 years ago when he first picked up a cue to play on the dining room table at his parents’ South London home. What followed was the development of a sporting phenomenon who took snooker to new heights and established himself as one of Britain’s best loved sportsmen.
Davis dominated the game in the 1980’s when he claimed six World Championships at Sheffield as well as capturing all the game’s major titles on numerous occasions. His success continued into the 90s and 00s and Davis has amassed 71 major titles during his career. He announced his retirement from professional snooker in 2016.
Davis is a regular on a variety of television shows and is recognised as one of the BBC’s leading snooker pundits and commentators, where his love of the sport that made him one of the most recognisable faces in Britain, shines through. His autobiography, Interesting, was released in spring 2015.
