Boxing has a long and eventful history and its drama, excitement and humour are covered in this fascinating account of the noble – and sometimes ignoble – art all over the world. From the bare-knuckle days when the Duke of Cumberland callously abandoned his protégé Jack Broughton when the latter could no longer fight on because he was blind, to 1964, when the charismatic Muhammad Ali knocked out Sonny Liston with a ‘phantom punch’ that no one in the audience saw thrown, and the advent in the twenty-first century of the dreaded ‘Beast from the East’, the 7ft tall Russian Nikolai Valuev who powered his inexorable way to the world heavyweight title, this book presents a vivid picture of the sport rightly known as the hardest game. Gallant stands, spectacular ‘dives’ audacious cons and heartbreaking defeats combine to present boxing in all its multi-faceted confusion and glory.

Absolute must for fight fans.

Brilliant, quirky little book that tells of the mad/daft/unbelievable side of the noble art. Ideal for in the karzy as there are no chapters as such….just bite sized chunks so speak. Highly reccomended.

This is a fab gift for a man who loves boxing but doesn’t like to read as much! Great factoids and short stories which means you can pick up or put down when you like. He loves it so I am happy! Even better, I get to read it after!
