From the Publisher"I will forever be appreciative of being so closely associated with such a gentleman and champion. I always say that when you look up the word 'champion' in the dictionary and read of its qualities—class, grace, and humility—you will see a picture of Alexis Argüello."—From the foreword by Ray Mancini, former World Boxing Association lightweight champion
"Just as he did in his first book about Roberto Duran, Christian Giudice offers a balanced and critical look at a great boxer’s life, in the appropriately named Beloved Warrior. His reporting discusses, at length, the contradiction between Alexis Argüello’s triumphs in the ring and the emotional, psychological, and political turbulence beyond the ropes that eventually claimed his life. Those who revere the fighter and person that Argüello was will finish Beloved Warrior thoroughly entertained, as well as better informed. For my money, one can’t ask more from a book than that.”—Lee Groves, boxing historian, columnist for The Ring and RingTV.com, and writer/researcher/punch counter for CompuBox, Inc.
