“It stung to some degree. I was very young, it was hard to read and hear so much negativity. I won the silver medal. I lost the fight on my feet. I didn’t see why everyone felt I was a disgrace. Ferdie Pacheco and folks were giving me no credit. It motivated me. All they can do is talk. In the ring, I determine what the outcome will be.” A behind the scenes look at the former heavyweight champion's life and times, The Triumph and Tragedy of Riddick Bowe chronicles Riddick's journey from the 1988 Olympics to top of the boxing world. The biography also provides insight into Bowe's abrupt exit from the sport. Complete with commentary from the boxing world, Triumph revolutionizes the way a boxing story is told, with material from Riddick Bowe himself and contributors from HBO's Larry Merhant to former world champion Evander Holyfield. Jim Lampley, Ross Greenburg, Lou Dibella, and a host of others make Triumph a must-read for any sports fan.
