Overview

The greatest fighters of all time come to life in the pages of this carefully researched and fully illustrated guide to the "Sweet Science." Packed with facts, figures, and action photos, every honoree in the Hall of Fame is here, from the earliest bare-knuckle brawlers to 20th-century heroes like Joe Louis and Muhammad Ali. In addition to the most significant boxers, this collection also includes information on lesser-known contributors to the sport—writers, journalists, promoters, trainers, and cutmen. The fifth edition has definitive fight-by-fight records of all International Boxing Hall of Fame inductees through 2011 and updated biographies and records for previous inductees.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This latest edition continues to deliver on the dual role . . . essential to those who seriously study the sport (the index is invaluable) while doubling as a fine jumping-on point for individuals just delving into the beauty of boxing." —www.MaxBoxing.com (November 2011)
Library Journal
All boxing aficionados will welcome this well-written and informative book by a pair of boxing enthusiasts. Concise biographical information and fight records on more than 180 boxers and their "supporting casts" in the Hall of Fame are presented in four sections: pioneers, old-timers, fighters of the modern era, and noncombatants. The authors provide useful and informative sections on boxing's governing bodies and the International Boxing Hall of Fame and elsewhere take an unblinking look at "Fixes and Fallen Heroes: The Seamy Side of Boxing." Nice illustrations add a dash to this fine reference. Highly recommended for public libraries.Ron Chepesiuk, Winthrop Univ. Lib., Rock Hill, S.C.
