New Book --   PETER JACKSON by Bob Petersen

Jackson is considered one of the greatest boxers who ever fought in the ring; He was fast and smooth, a boxer - puncher of the first degree who took his time, paced himself, jabbed and moved, and possessed a dangerous "One-Two"; He often fought men using just one arm - his "right hand barred"

Jackson was a serious threat to John L. Sullivan during the late 1880s and early 1890s but never received a title shot; He traveled extensively and engaged in many fights trying to secure a championship fight; Many historians consider Jackson to be the greatest fighter of that period

Jackson was inducted into the Ring Boxing Hall of Fame in 1956 and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990
