    Who Lies There? A Compendium of Boxer's Obituaries



    Who Lies There? A Compendium of Boxer's Obituaries
    By Mike DeLisa & Johnny Bos

    Over 100 pages of obituaries of boxers, fighters, managers, and promoters. The gamut runs from the most famous to the most obscure. Complete obituaries are reprinted, and serve as an immense guide to furhter research for the boxing fan -- or as a bet-settler for the true stat geek. Learn of the sad end of Gene Tunney opponent Wolf Larson, who once stole a milk wagon (horse and all) and tried to pawn it for a bottle of hootch. You probably never heard of Jack LaFontise, who dies while attended by his brothers, pro boxers themselves, but you won't forget his stoy. Some of the nation's besst sportswriters describe the end of many of our boxing heroes and villains -- Gene Tunney, Sugar Ray Robinson, Kid Chocolate, Jack Johnson, Benny Leonard, Harry Greb, Jem Ward, Bob Fitzsimmons, Joe Jennette (Jeanette), Al Palzer, Benny Bass and hundreds of others. Which boxer died after drinking carbolic acid? Who died while making moonshine whisky when his still exploded? Who drowned? This book answers all of these questions. Size 8 1/2 x 11 inches, spiral bound.

    The words "boxer" and "killed" kind of go hand and hand it seems. Or "Boxer" and "Sentenced" go well together

    Still waiting for my copy, that I paid for at eBay 1.5 months ago. I have no idea how a supposed "airmail" can take that long, unless it's really a surface mail shipping instead, or my order was forgotten about.
