BEAUTIFUL BOXING BOOKS!

BEAUTIFUL BOXING BOOKS!

ABE BOOKS IS FEATURING A RINGFUL OF COOL BOXING TITLES . . .

Boxing, one of the oldest sports in existence, has been revisited many times by authors trying to make sense of the mayhem in the ring. Labeled the Sweet Science and loved by Ernest Hemingway, who actually wanted to spar with world heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey, boxing has seen books about the rules, books about how to do it, books about the ethics and dangers, and much literature about the combatants themselves.

This selection, featuring many remarkable cover designs, includes books about pugilistic legends like Gene Tunney who twice beat Dempsey, ‘Cinderella Man’ James Braddock, the ageless Archie Moore who fought from 1938 to 1963, Jake ‘The Raging Bull’ LaMotta, ‘Gentlemen’ Jim Corbett, convicted robber Sonny Liston and Cassius Clay who became fought Liston into submission and became Muhammad Ali.

Take a journey from the rules established by the Marquess of Queensberry to the age of bare knuckle bouts to the great champions and the most famous fights of the 20th century.
