Larry Holmes is a boxing legend and often ranked by boxing historians as one of the best fighters to ever lace up the gloves. He held the heavyweight title for nearly eight years during what many fans and scribes consider the Golden Era of the sport. He fought his way to the pinnacle of success despite (and because of) unscrupulous promoters, crooked officials, naysayers, and the shark-infested waters of boxing's movers and shakers.
But he kept on winning.
This is his story. Unfiltered and raw.
It's told with the help of business associates, competitors, broadcasters, friends, and family.
This is Larry Holmes's tell-all view of his career and the boxing world. His observations, opinions, and insights bring you into the ring for his most noted fights (Norton, Ali, Cooney, Shavers, and Tyson) and shares with the reader what he thinks and how he feels.
This book is a must-have for boxing fans.
