2.0 out of 5 stars did not live up to the tital
Too much about Mahamed Ali, the so called greatest, but not in my book, good maybe but he started all the hype that has destroyed the game.
The omission of too many boxers who were boxers & who respected their opponants ie- Nel Tarlton, Ernie Roderick, Howard Winstone. Peter Kane,Johny King, Jackie Brown, Jock McAvoy & so many more who were boxers & sportsmen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!, 29 Dec 2011
This review is from: When Boxing Was Boxing: A Nostalgic Look at a Century of Boxing (Hardcover)
Bought this for my stepfather - a boxing fan from back in the day! He loved it. The book is lovely: excellently put together, and with just enough info to take your interest in new directions and to new fighters. Great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST BUY!, 25 Jan 2013
This review is from: When Boxing Was Boxing: A Nostalgic Look at a Century of Boxing (Hardcover)
A good balance of written information but balanced with an equal amount of excellent photographic memorabilia! A beautiful hardback book and a beautiful present for any boxing enthusiast.
This was an excellent choice for a Christmas present for a family member, whom I bought this for.
It was excellent value for money.
