Format: Paperback
This book is a must read for every boxing fan. I really enjoyed it and I learned a lot about boxing in general aswell as about this great fighter. It was good to hear about what his thoughts are and I liked the fact that he included little tips that helped me to improve as a boxer.
What I liked about this book was the fact that it was written by the man himself and as a result you gain a lot more insight, you know that what is written is the exact truth.
I have read many boxing biographies over the years and this has to be one of the best, if not THE BEST.
I thought that it was an extremely enjoyable read and I would advise everyone to buy this book.
Afterall, Muhammad Ali said that Ray Robinson was the greatest and I have to agree.

As an avid reader of sports books mainly on the sport of boxing I have to say this is probably the greatest book I have read. The book starts out from Robinson's child hood and continues right up to his retirement from the ring. The book gives some insight on how famous Robinson was during his career especially in France where he was treat like a national hero. There is also a very interesting chapter on Muhammad Ali. Buy this book and I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.

This book goes straight into the heart and mind of one of boxings greatest fighters. Sugar Ray tells the tale of a true champion, and in doing so it tells the tale of a man who came from an unfavourable begining to reach great prestige and distinction. This book was a knockout!

This is, without a doubt, the best boxing autobiography ever published. The second best,
remarkably, is the Sugar Ray Leonard life story.

This book is as great as the man himself, so when you consider that Sugar Ray Robinson was unquestionably the greatest boxer of all time, then I need not say more.

From start to end I was enthralled, this autobiography takes you an emotional journey of trials and tribulations. I was very inspired and now know more about the greatest boxer ever.

There will never be another Sugar Ray Robinson.
