Book Summary

The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Boxing is the world's most comprehensive single-volume illustrated work of boxing reference, covering all aspects of the sport since its rise from the days of illegal big-money challenge matches to the multi-million-dollar televised extravaganza it is today. As well as details of the careers of the world's greatest boxers, and descriptions of many of their outstanding fights, it traces the progress of the world title from champion to champion in all the weight classes, outlines the status of boxing around the world, considers the prominent men behind the scenes as promoters, trainers and managers, recalls some of the great stadiums where boxing history was made, and details the administrative bodies, the rules, the culture and the ambience of the fight game, including its occasional tragedies, along with its scandals. There is also a new section for this updated and revised edition, celebrating boxing in the Olympic Games. The book concludes with a statistical section, listing the facts, figures and oddities of boxing. No serious student of boxing can afford to be without The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Boxing on their shelves.
