Boxing The Greatest Figthers Description

For more than 100 years the sport of boxing, with its peculiar blend of artistry and raw aggression, has captured the public imagination. Its fighters have enthralled successive generations with their skill and courage. This book examines the careers of the greatest of these men. Some, such as the rugged Jack Dempsey and outrageously gifted Sugar Ray Leonard, are known almost entirely for their feats in the ring. Others, such as Jack Johnson and Muhammad Ali, had an impact that reached far beyond the sport itself. Each, however, led a life that elevated him to a special place in the public consciousness. The book also explores the history of boxing, from bare-knuckle fighting in 18th-century England to modern-day fighting in the 21st century, concentrating on the careers of its practitioners. The dramatic lives of each fighter are covered in detail, and their astonishing exploits are brought to life in more than 200 photographs.
