Death of a Boxer Description

On the back' of Death of a Boxer

"You will never again watch a fight in the same way after reading Death of a Boxer. It is, hands down, the best and most important book on boxing I've ever read." Donald Ray Pollock, author of Knockemstiff and The Devil All the Time

"Of achievements in boxing, one that stands out is a 90lb kid named Gary. A disfigured lip and speech impairment haunted him in school, until he began boxing lessons in my gym. Six months later, his marks improved, as did his speech. The vocal chords weren't knocked into place; a belief and dependability were put into place. Such victories are what makes the sweet science both a builder and saviour of young men. This is the message of Death of a Boxer." Teddy Atlas, world-renowned boxing trainer

"Pete Carvill turns a probing yet compassionate eye on a young casualty of a sport that has seen far too many.
While you may never have heard of the unlucky Scottish pro Mike Towell, you have seen him in gyms across the world, where testosterone-fuelled dreams are hatched and even the special few end up in sorrow.
Death of a Boxer is indeed a cautionary tale."
Mark Kram Jr, author of Smokin' Joe: The Life of Joe Frazier
