Format: Paperback
Twice Bitten The Untold Story of Holyfield Tyson II is the title of this book and it has been marketed as a book about the events that happened on "Bite Nite".

I brought this book expecting a similiar level of research, analysis and dissection as Kevin Mitchell provided in his excellent book on the Nigel Benn v Gerrald McClellend fight " War Baby". What I got was a horrible feeling of being shortchanged.

Firstly most of Holyfield and Tyson fights are covered in the book's 255 pages.

However so is the childhood's of both fighters, their amateur careers, olympic involvement their promotional arrangements, turning pro, pro careers,private lives up until their status as at 2013.

Not suprisingly what you get is a very superficial view of both fighters lives.I was aware of at least 90% of the facts that form the contents of the book beforehand just by following the sport and reading monthly boxing magazines like the Ring and Boxing Monthly.

The book looks the part. However even when you come to terms with the fact that it is not what it is a percieved too be. It is still disappointing to read the superficial level of detail afforded to each fighters career.

Tyson's first fight with Bruno is covered in a few sentances and fails to acknowledge that Bruno had Tyson there for the taking in the first round. Either fighter could justify at least half a dozen books that focused on specific aspects of their career. To cram all of this into 250 pages is ambitious and results in a lot of issues being covered superficially rather than any particular insight that warrants the cost of purchasing the book to me.

The book is a good read ,it is interesting and a indepth account of the june 1996 heavyweight bout between mike tyson and evander holyfield the book exploses the fight the training and the mentality of both fighters .
The book is a good book for all fans of heavyweight boxing in the 90s,i was pleased with the book and i learn things about the tyson and holyfield rivalry .
The book is little short for me but i enjoyed what was included ,that is why it gets 4 out of 5..

This book is superb and allowed me to relive a golden era of heavyweight boxing. I can't recommend the author's writing style, research and gravitas highly enough.
