The Great Book of Boxing: Harry Mullan
I enjoyed this book, despite Mr. Mullan constantly trying to throw in plugs for British fighters. It gets a bit inappropriate (and embarrassing) at times, ie- When discussing the great middleweight champs: "The genius of Sugar Ray Robinson. The ferocity of Stanley Ketchel, Harry Greb and Mickey Walker. The Charisma of Marcel Cerdan. The courage of Terry Downes. The professional perfection of Marvin Hagler..."
I'll let you guys guess which one don't belong.
Plus several pages devoted to Henry Cooper??
Otherwise an excellent book.
On another note, can anyone here give us a review of the Billy Conn book "The Pittsburgh Kid"?
I'm reading "Sweet William" right now and am loving it.
