Professional boxing is filled with stories of dreams, determination, blood, and will.
A Few More Rounds: A Collection of Boxing Tales, by Jerry Fitch and John J. Raspanti, examines the sights, sounds, and assorted types that populate the fistic landscape.
The 20 chapters include unique stories from Fitch, who writes lovingly of his lifetime friendships with legendary fighters of the past, and Raspanti, whose prose includes instances of racism, hate, retribution, and loyalty.
Stories featuring Jersey Joe Walcott, Tony Zale, Muhammad Ali, Sergey Kovalev, and Andre Ward are included, along with personal experiences, insights, and memories from both authors.
The foreword is authored by famed former Ring magazine and International Boxing Hall of Fame member Nigel Collins.
