4.0 out of 5 stars Heart of a Lion, 6 Feb 2007
This review is from: Hands of Stone: The Life and Legend of Roberto Duran (Hardcover)
A very interesting insight of the man & sometime myth that is Roberto Duran. A good if simple read of a a simple man who just wanted to fight & to survive & eventually break free from the poverty. The details

of his Panamanion childhood growing up to adulthood & how latin culture lives & survives is a educational read. I wish there was a bit more on his fighting, training methods & how he prepared for fights, a bit more insight of his fears & feelings But again I guess,

to him it was just simple streefighting attitude. Like a previous reviewer

metioned a very supportive naration by the author. I wanted to hear more about the dark nasty side of duran that was there once, did'nt get any on this. Overall a good interesting read on one of a kind old school fighter who captured the hearts of many fans, which is now lacking in todays curcius act boxing.
