Excellent source of inspiration that will help strengthen your understanding of boxing theory. It is authored by Andy Dumas who is a boxing coach and Jamie Dumas who is a trainer of fitness instructors. The book is well illustrated throughout with 360 live action and instructional color photographs. The 2013 edition contains 160 numbered pages and 10 chapters. It starts with a forward by Juan Manuel Marquez and then goes into the chapters. CHAPTER ONE is about the winning spirit that successful boxers have and how all training should be designed to teach this winning spirit. It is also gives advice on what to look for in a coach. CHAPTER TWO is about the basic techniques of boxing and covers the classic boxing stance, the execution of a punch, the left jab, the straight right, the left hook, the uppercut, footwork and movement, feints and slips, developing effective punch combinations, shadowboxing and classic combinations. The common errors and fixes for each technique are given so you can be aware of them and correct them. CHAPTER THREE is about punch bag workouts and covers how to protect your hands, types of gloves, the heavy bag, basic and advanced heavy bag combinations, drills, the speed bag, the double end striking bag, the uppercut bag, and the hook bag. The common errors and fixes for each technique is given so you can be aware of them and correct them. CHAPTER FOUR is about focused mitt training covering working with a partner, basic drills, advanced focus mitts, building advanced combinations, the body protector/trainers vest, focused mitt sprints, and freestyle mitt training. CHAPTER FIVE is about jump roping and covers how to choose the right rope, the proper form. neutral moves, and combinations. CHAPTER SIX is about road work and covers the things you have to take into consideration , effective running techniques, how to measure your training intensity and heart rate, roadwork training levels, the different types of sprints and the importance of stretching. CHAPTER SEVEN is about strength training. It covers core strength exercises you can do with a medicine ball and lower, upper and full body drills. It also goes into detail about core exercises without a medicine ball. CHAPTER EIGHT gives two training routines you can use depending on your conditioning level. CHAPTER NINE is about how to make intelligent decisions about sparring, directed sparring, situational sparring, free-form sparring, what to expect the first time you spar, how to prepare yourself using positive visualization, sparring gear, defensive and offensive moves, and different boxing styles. CHAPTER TEN is about motivation. It gives some images of the world’s top boxers in action with a technical review of their punches and talks about weight classes, female fighters, and characteristics of a successful boxer. The book finishes with the final thoughts of the authors and an index. Overall, a brilliant resource to increase your theoretical knowledge of boxing. As with any combat sport, you can learn to train from a book, but cannot learn to fight from one. The theory is only a small percentage of what you need. The actual practical application of the theory is vital. So make sure you get to a gym. I highly recommend this book to any student of the sweet science.

Great book! I’ve been training mma and Muay Thai for a while now and bought this to help improve my boxing. It has really provided me with a lot of insight into boxing and helped a lot. I really like how they explain different techniques and have a list of common mistakes and tells you how you fix it!

Successful Boxing is the one book that can help fitness junkies as well as serious athletes improve and hone boxing techniques. I especially liked the `common errors and quick fixes’ sections which highlighted what I might be doing wrong and help me to develop the proper form. The detailed instructional pictures take you through step by step. There is a section on Motivation which I found very inspiring. I really loved all the shots of the pros in action! Successful Boxing is one of several books on boxing and fitness by the same authors; I have them all and refer to them regularly. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is just starting out in fitness boxing to anyone who is serious about learning how to box like the pros!
