Bert Sugar makes you feel as if you are watching a blow by blow account of some of the greatest fighters who ever lived as if you were at ringside. The well known figure of Angelo Dundee tells his story of the fight game as only one of the greatest trainers can tell it. Bert Sugar is at his very best and anyone who has seen or heard about Mohammed Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson or George Foreman will love this book. The book belongs in any sports fan's library.

As a longtime boxing fan and recreational boxer, my heart skipped a beat ... just like when you see that hard right hand quickly heading toward your nose ... when I finally saw this wonderful book on the shelf. I have always imagined what Dundee, along with the great boxing writer and historian Sugar, would put together and it's a book I read with utter fascination. Certainly, Dundee's years with Ali are the highlight of the memoir, but his beginnings in training and his life working with other fighters, famous and not so famous, are just as satisfying. Here's a man who devoted nearly his entire life to training the finest athletes in the world ... professional boxers ... and the result, knowing he's retired now, is a beautiful and bittersweet rendering of his life in the gym and in the corner ... and the lives of those who won a lot. Hell, I personally know how hard it is just to land one solid punch in three rounds of sparring. Now here's a book that wins you over on every page. What a treat. What a boxing education. Thanks, Angelo and Bert. You both get your arms raised by me .... by Todd Sentell, author of the hilarious social satire, TOONAMINT OF CHAMPIONS

Bought this for my husband who has been a boxing enthusiast most of his life. It was a surprise gift to him. I asked him if he liked it so far and he replied: "it's amazing--contains stories by Angelo Dundee regarding boxers he trained throughout his lifetime". Glad I bought it for him. My husband enjoys reading non-fiction and this book fits the bill!!!!!!!

Just when you thought you knew everything about boxing during the Ali era, this book reveals so much more from the man who was there and in his corner ... not to mention the other great champs he propelled to the top. An incredibly insightful and delightful look at the sweet science.
