Item Description: Little, Brown Book Group, 2005. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In July 1965 Freddie Mills, popular former light heavyweight champion of the world, was found shot in an alleyway off London's Charing Cross Road. Was he murdered and if so by whom? Did he kill himself and if so why should this happily married man whose popularity was immense take his own life? A year later Britain's second world champion of the era, the middleweight Randolph Turpin who defeated the fabulous Sugar Ray Robinson, was found shot dead in a room above his cafe in Leamington Spa. How did this man who earned thousands during his career come to end his life in a backstreet cafe? Or was he also murdered to prevent him getting the money due to him from his career? Morton looks at the role of their managers and promoters and the relationship with the Boxing Board of Control. Should many of Mills' fights and some of Turpin's have been sanctioned? Is this in part what led to their deaths? Where did their money go? Gambling, women, protection? Is there any possible truth in the persistent rumours that Mills was the so-called Jack the Stripper, killer of prostitutes in Hammersmith?. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0751533211

Summary: "The Last Great Fightsucceeds in provoking a sense of tense anticipation about an event that is firmly etched in the memory of every boxing fan. And Layden's even-handed treatment of both the principals and the supporting cast provides a nuanced account of this epic moment." The New York Times Book Review "Layden has researched and written the most compelling and moving book on the sweet science we've seen in years."Booklist (starred review) "Layden had full access to the main players, and his interviews with the affable, star-crossed underdog providea compelling perspective on the ultimate coulda-been."-ESPN The Magazine "Inprose that's as sharp as an uppercut, Layden revisits the day Douglas handed Mike Tyson his first loss. A generation of young fans know Tyson as a novelty act and boxing as a niche sport. Layden traces both declines to that night in Tokyo." Sports Illustrated "Boxing fans will want to addThe Last Great Fightto the vast collection on great books on the Sweet Science, from Hemingway to A.J. Liebling to Norman Mailer. Just file it at the end of the shelf; it's the last book you'll ever need." Los AngelesTimes "Prose as crisp as a Sugar Ray Robinson jab." DenverPost "[An] exhilarating and hard hitting account."

Times Union(Albany, NY) "Joe Layden'sThe Last Great Fighttells you everything you need to know about James "Buster" Douglas' monumental upset of Mike Tyson." The Plain Dealer(Cleveland) "Exceptional.Vivid detail.Besides getting interviews with Douglas and Tyson, Layden has interviewed everyone who had any role in the event."NashvilleCityPaper.

Item Description: Da Capo Press, 1994. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Sugar Ray Robinson (1921-1989) was hailed as the finest boxer to ever enter a ring. Muhammad Ali once called him "the king, my master, my idol"-and indeed, he was the idol of everyone who had anything to do with boxing. But for African Americans, he was more than a great boxer. In an era when blacks were supposed to be humble and grateful for favors received, he was a man whose every move in and out of the ring showed what black pride and power meant. Sugar Ray grew up during the Depression in the ghettos of Detroit and New York, rose through the amateur boxing ranks, became Golden Gloves champion at the featherweight at the age of eighteen, and become world welterweight champion in 1946 and middleweight in 1951. Robinson had it all, but later lost it all; and in this classic autobiography he tells it all with remarkable candor. Here is Sugar Ray: the dazzlingly handsome champion with a craving for fast cars and fast living; the kid who was terrified of elevators; the young GI who, together with Joe Louis, combated racial discrimination; the honest fighter who refused a million dollars to throw a fight against Rocky Graziano; the boxer who dreamed he would kill his opponent in the ring, and did so the following night. This Da Capo edition is supplemented with a new foreword and afterword by Dave Anderson about Sugar Ray's last years in Los Angeles and the legacy he left behind, and with eight new pages of stunning photographs.

Item Description: BLAKE PUBLISHING, 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.

Item Description: Taylor Publishing, Dallas, Texas, U.S.A., 1996. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A photo of this book is available. Like-new condition. Appears unread. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Price inside dustcover: $21.95. Number line: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. NO writing, marks or tears. 315 pages. Illustrated with photos. Synopsis When Joe Louis (1914-1981) knocked out the German boxer Max Schmeling in 1938 in two minutes and four seconds, the entire nationvblack and whitevcelebrated the "fight of the century" as a victory of the United States against the ominous tide of Nazism. Never had an African-American received such universal praise across racial lines. Heavyweight champion for a record twelve years from 1937 to 1949, Louis opened the doors for such future black athletes as Jackie Robinson, Sugar Ray Robinson, and Muhammad Ali.Joe Louis depicts the prizefighter's life, and the times in which he lived, from his childhood in a sharecropper's cabin in Alabama and his formative years in Detroit, to his legendary career, his service in the Army, his stint as a professional wrestler after retiring from boxing in 1951, and his professional demise as an official greeter for a Las Vegas casino. Along the way, Richard Bak compassionately, yet evenhandedly, details Louis's private vices: incessant womanizing, reckless spending habits, massive debts to the IRS, and drug abuse. Filled with over one hundred photographs, including twenty-two in color, Joe Louis is the most comprehensive portrait yet written of one of the greatest African-American heroes who used his fists figurativelyvand literallyvto fight racism. Annotation More than a simple biography, Joe Louis provides an in-depth look at what constitutes a "hero" in America's black community. As much as any drug store sit-in, civil rights march, or Senate Hill bill, Louis' fists figuratively and literally demolished the myth of white supremacy; his quiet dignity and unquestioned patriotism opened the door for the wave of black athletes who followed him. 32 pages of photos, many in color. Dallas Morning News [This] work takes its place with those excellent boxing histories that are as much about American culture and sociology as they are about sports. Biography Richard Bak, a native of Detroit, is the author of eight books, including the critically acclaimed Lou Gehrig: An American Genius and Ty Cobb: His Tumultuous Life and Times.

Summary: Now, in the first book of its kind, Thomas Myler tells the inside stories of the most sensational and talked-about upsets in world championship fights in the history of the ring, starting with the gas lamp days of James J. Corbett's shock win over the mighty John L. Sullivan in 1892, right up to the modern era with the legendary Julio Cesar Chavez's dramatic defeat by underdog Frankie Randall.In between are classic shock results including Mike Tyson's shattering defeat at the hands of James 'Buster' Douglas, Muhammad Ali's win over Sonny Liston against all the odds, Iran Barkley's destruction of the legendary Thomas Hearns, and Gene Tunney"s great victory over Jack Dempsey.Here, too, are Barry McGuigan's unexpected downfall against late substitute Steve Cruz, the astonishing defeat of Sugar Ray Robinson by the unheralded Randolph Turpin, George Foreman's annihilation of iron man Joe Frazier, ring-rusty Sugar Ray Leonard's win over indestructable Marvelous Marvin Hagler and many more.In rich, colorful writing Thomas Myler chronicles the fascinating background of each fight before taking the reader to a ringside seat and then, afterwards, into the crowded dressing room.

Item Description: BLAKE PUBLISHING, 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.
