Summary: "This book is a wonderful mix of reporting and grace, inspired by the thunder and speed of a much forgotten champion. Deeply researched, superbly written, thankfully devoid of dripping sentimentality, Wil Haygood takes an old broom to Harlem history and sweeps out the corners. This is the boxer we never knew." James McBride, author ofThe Color of Water "The best is always fragile, Sugar Ray Robinson once said, and it took a writer of Wil Haygood's magnificence to appreciate what this meant in bringing the great boxer back to life. Sweet Thunder is a jewel from beginning to end." David Maraniss, author ofWhen Pride Still MatteredandRome 1960 "Finally, a biography worthy of a great athlete and social force, Sugar Ray Robinson." Larry Merchant,HBO World Championship Boxing. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_1400044979

Item Description: Robson Books, 1999. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. 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: 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

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: 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.
