Summary: A sampling: "If 'Peanuts' cartoon character Charlie Brown had been a boxer, he would have been Floyd Patterson. Patterson's ring career was a tightrope walk across the chasm of his own introspective personality." "You sensed that when Sonny Liston spat out his mouthpiece he was spitting out the rotten, bitter fruits of a success that was really just one more disguised failure in the life of this unlucky man." "Frazier, who could have retired earlier without any criticism, kept pleading. But Futch cut his gloves off. This evening, there was a sore winner and a sore loser, but there were also two self-satisfied men who undeniably had given it there best." "A big right crashed into Larry's face like a bag of bricks dropped from a second-story window." "After a fusillade of rights, the lanky Hearns, in his best imitation of an accordion, gently folded through the ropes." "It had lasted exactly 3 minutes and 57 seconds, 237 seconds of mayhem, in which 11 knockdowns were scored in the shortest and wildest "great fight" in the history of boxing. It could hardly be called "the Sweet Science," but it was one hellvua sweet quarrel." "With one deep-dish beauty of a right at 43 seconds into the thirteenth round, Rocky Marciano almost tore the head off defending champion Jersey Joe Walcott, knocking off his crown in the process, a crown he had worn securely for the previous 12 rounds.".

Item Description: University Press of Florida, 2010. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Be a part of the legendary boxing gym in its prime "It was the gym where the Muhammad Ali legend was born. The 5th Street Gym in Miami and those that inhabited it are gone now, but inside these pages their spirit lives."--Thomas K. Stewart, Boxing Writers of America "Ferdie Pacheco takes you back to a time and place that no longer exist in boxing. On these pages, you are standing alongside the great characters of the sport, inside the wonderfully eclectic 5th Street Gym. You can feel the rhythm of the gym, smell the sweat, and hear the pounding of the heavy bags. What a ride."--Robert Cassidy, Newsday In its forty-year existence, the 5th Street Gym housed the training grounds for three of the greatest fighters the sport has ever known--Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, and Sugar Ray Leonard--and became the locus for a grand total of fourteen world champions. The site was also a magnet for a wide range of international celebrities including Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, Jackie Gleason, Frank Sinatra, the Beatles, and Sylvester Stallone, who were all absorbed into the gym's legend. The 5th Street Gym's beginnings trace back to 1950, when Chris Dundee, along with his brother Angelo, began promoting big-time boxing at Miami Beach. Tales from the 5th Street Gym includes a wealth of never-before-seen photographs and is the first to chronicle the fascinating history of the 5th Street Gym from one of its insiders--Dr. Ferdie Pacheco--with crucial contributions from Tom Archdeacon, Angelo Dundee, Suzanne Dundee Bonner, Enrique Encinosa, Howard Kleinberg, Ramiro Ortiz, Edwin Pope, Bob Sheridan, and Budd Schulberg. Discover the secret history of one of boxing's most hallowed grounds, as Pacheco recalls the rise, heyday, and fall of the "sweet science" at Miami Beach.

Item Description: John Blake Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 128 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Henry Cooper is best remembered for the night he nearly changed boxing history - 19 July 1963. Fighting an up-and-coming boxer by the name of Cassius Clay, later to become Muhammad Ali, his famous left hook (known as Henry s Hammer ) sent Clay crashing onto the canvas. Arguably Britain s greatest ever heavyweight fighter, Cooper won 40 of his 55 professional bouts, beating most of the true boxing greats along the way. His story is littered with famous names - Rocky Marciano, Floyd Patterson, Sonny Liston, Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson, and, of course, Ali. But Cooper s retirement from the sport did not spell the end of his time in the public eye, as he embarked on a successful media career. Disaster struck in the 1990s, however, when his innocent involvement in a scandal surrounding insurance giants Lloyd s of London led to him having to sell his unique collection of three Lonsdale belts to pay his bills.He was knighted in the millennium New Year s honours list for his services to boxing, and his death in May 2011 sparked a huge outpouring of tributes from the sporting community.

This evening, there was a sore winner and a sore loser, but there were also two self-satisfied men who undeniably had given it there best."

Liebling s classic New Yorker pieces on the sweet science of bruising bring vividly to life the boxing world as it once was. It depicts the great events of boxing s American heyday: Sugar Ray Robinson s dramatic comeback, Rocky Marciano s rise to prominence, Joe Louis s unfortunate decline. Liebling never fails to find the human story behind the fight, and he evokes the atmosphere in the arena as distinctly as he does the goings-on in the ring--a combination that prompted Sports Illustrated to name The Sweet Science the best American sports book of all time.

Item Description: AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 147 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This book is about some ghetto kids of the 1930 s and 40 s who became famous because they learned how to fight better than anyone else. We call them boxers and they came from the neighborhoods of New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit and other cities. The Television Set was introduced to Americans in the late 1940 s as an alternative to radio. The Friday Night fights soon followed. The Friday Night fights were broadcast weekly by Gillete and Pabst Blue Ribbon from the late 1940 s into the early 1960 s. Along with The Milton Berle Show the Friday Night fights helped to sell millions of television sets during these years as families and friends gathered together to watch their heroes perform. FRIDAY S HEROES is also about a young man from the Italian section of Hartford, Connecticut who went on to become One of the Greatest Fighters in the history of the sport. His name was Willie Pep. This Will O the Wisp was World Featherweight Champion from 1942-1951 and campaigned for twenty-six years. Finally, this is a book about such people as Sugar Ray Robinson, Rocky Graziano, Chico Vejar, Kid Gavilan, Joey Giardello, Billy Graham, Rocky Marciano, Ezzard Charles, Joe Louis, Jake LaMotta, and others who are no longer the ghetto kids making a living from boxing, but middle-aged men with the roar of the crowd behind them. Today, the athlete - never to be confused with a boxer - is a celebrated figure. Yet as boxers these men seemed to have a different kind of respectability in our society, perhaps because they had to fight for a living. Nevertheless, no warrior that stalked the arena was more gallant than these kids. Willie Pep Remembers.Friday s Heroes is a book about people, these people. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781434301826
