About this Item: Birlinn General, United Kingdom, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Floyd `Money Mayweather is one of the most successful professional boxers of all time. In September 2015 he defeated Andre Berto at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to claim his forty-ninth professional victory in a glittering unbeaten ring career that has spanned two decades. Mayweather was born into a boxing family that was barely surviving on the poverty line. His father had enjoyed a modestly successful career in the ring but had to make ends meet on the street. When a rival drug dealer arrived at the house and threatened to shoot him, Floyd Mayweather Sr picked up his son and used him as a human shield. Such were the ashes from which Floyd was to rise. This is the remarkable story of Floyd Mayweather s ascent from these bleak origins to become the highest-paid sportsman on the planet. It is a story of greed, arrogance, abuse, extraordinary boxing ability and unrivalled ambition. In Money, Tris Dixon explores it all in a searing, insightful and often brutal expose of one of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen. This new edition will be fully updated to include Mayweather s fight with UFC star Conor McGregor as he aims to claim an historic 50-0 fight record that will take him past heavyweight legend Rocky Marciano s record.

About this Item: AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. 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. Seller Inventory # AAV9781434301826

About this Item: Farrar, Straus Giroux Inc, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A.J. 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.
