This review is from: Four Kings: Leonard, Hagler, Hearns, Duran and the Last Great Era of Boxing: Leonard, Hagler, Hearns and Duran and the Last Great Era of Boxing (Paperback)
I like how honest the author is. He doesn't pander to Ray Leonard like many of authors and journalists tend to. That is not to say Ray Leonard's skill and ability are overlooked by the author. Hearns, Hagler, Duran and Leonard are all treated equally and unbiasedly by the author.
My only "complaint" (without wishing to sound like a 9 year old boy) was I would have liked more photographs of the pugilists.
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the period of boxing, it really is excellently written, many insightful comments and completely without prejudice to any of the four legends.

Mr. M. P. Dawson says:
I think the author is clearly a fan of The Sugarman but I have no problem with that. He argues clearly and persuasively why Leonard beat Hagler and the draw in Leonard-Hearns II was a fair result.
A great book for anyone even vaguely into that era of boxing. Or great boxing per se.
