4.0 out of 5 stars War Baby 28 Aug 2002
Anybody who has seen this fight would be advised to read this book, as so often with terrific fights there is always an aftermath unfortunately with this fight the aftermath left one through champion disapled and probably the best pound for pound fighter in the UK a shadow of his former self.Kevin Mitchell's account of the fight and fighters themselves is brilliant and I applaud him for giving so many fans a chance to look into Gerald McClellan's life after such a memorable battle back in '95.This book also looks at boxing as a sport from it's earliest day's and gives a good insight into fighters and their mentality a quality read and I definatley recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough material for a book 1 Nov 2009
This would have worked brilliantly as a series of features in the Observer (the paper the author works for). As a book, I just feel it has too much filler. For instance there are weird interludes about the hotels Mitchell stays in, or how he gets drunk at their bars. What this has to do with the fight I have no idea..

He's a good writer, but I would be cautious about buying this book. It's ok, but no more than that.

...for anyone who saw that fight, it was unforgetable: beautiful yet horrifying. I'd never heard of Kevin Mitchell, and it was a bit strange trying to decipher some of the english that our cousins across the sea use, but I thought it was a great book, and did a good job trying to explore the attraction to violence in twin cultures.
