If you watch boxing, you are exposed to a gargantuan array of opinion-based analyses. You have the blow-by-blow commentators narrating what you are to believe is taking place inside the ring, the referee who manipulates the action and scolds when he believes the fighters get out of line, the trainers who try to mend the psyche of their fighters in the corner, the audience who cheer for the local favorite, the fighters who have the unwritten obligation to always believe they are better than the o ...more
Amounts to a capsule history of modern boxing, and gives you a flavor of what people love and deplore about the fight game. Solid two-layer cake by boxing historian Sugar and trainer/commentator Atlas -- who between them have probably played every role in the boxing ecoverse except promoter -- with sweet frosting provided by the likes of Sugar Ray Leonard ("My 10 Toughest Fights") and Angelo Dundee ("Boxing's Best Cornermen/Trainers"). Worth a spot on every fight fan's shelf.
If you are a boxing fan and enjoy lists and raucous debate of all things the sweet science, it's definitely worth picking up.
A great way to read this book is to look up the fighters and fights mentioned in the book on You Tube.
