Overview

Boxing has produced some of the world's most exciting and colorful athletes, from Jack Johnson and Jake LaMotta to Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson. They're all in this ultimate guide, the most comprehensive single-volume illustrated boxing reference available, now fully revised and updated to include every major world title fight up to March 2013, plus biographies of modern great champions and reports on outstanding recent fights. In fan-delighting detail, it covers all aspects of the sport, from the days of illegal big-money challenge matches to today's multimillion-dollar televised extravaganza; the careers of the greatest boxers and their best fights; the prominent behind-the-scene figures; the administrative bodies, rules, culture, and ambience of the fight game; the tragedies and the scandals. A statistical section lists the facts, figures, and oddities of the sport.
