"John L. Sullivan: The Career of the First Gloved Heavyweight Champion"


Preface: Why I Undertook This Project and Why You Should Read It

Before reading this book you should ask yourself why you are willing to invest your valuable time in it as opposed to many others that you could select. I have written a book that is unique among boxing books. It is not going to give the same facts and stories that other books continually regurgitate and steal from each other, adding nothing further to history. It will be revealing and informative even to seasoned historians, for it is the most thoroughly researched and detailed accounting of legendary champion John L. Sullivan's career.

Adam Pollack is a CBZ staff writer, a boxing coach, and an attorney. For details on how to order his book, click here.
