3.0 out of 5 stars Good light read, shame about the lead time, 30 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: American Son: My Story (Paperback)
I'm an avid boxing fan, was looking for some light reading and came across this book. It's not the most well written book, but "The Golden Boy's" story is an interesting one. From his youth as an amateur sparring Julio Cesar Chavez to Olympic glory. Culminating in his fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. the book is an interesting tale of one of modern boxings most well known fighters.

The downsides of this book are De la Hoya's tendency to have excuses for literally all of his professional losses and poor performances, while purposefully leaving out times when he had questionable decision wins (Felix Sturm, Pernell Whitaker)

Also, the book took nearly two months to arrive, I'm from Ireland and this was being shipped from the US. No matter what way you look at it, two months is a bit much!
