4.0 out of 5 stars A good recount of 90's shocks!!, 9 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Rocky Lives! Heavyweight Boxing Upsets of the 1990s (Hardcover)
First of all this is not a book about the fictional character of Rocky Balboa played by Sylvester Stallone. This book merely uses the Rocky term to bolden the 'upset' aspect.

This book focuses on heavyweight upsets which occurred throughout the nineties and is an interesting recollection for those who kept an eye on the heavyweight scene (as i did) during those times. The book focuses on each year and highlights the 'key' upsets that occured. There are some really obscure bouts and fighters here which few will remember however the backstory that acocmpanies each one is interesting and this is a great source of info for the 'where are they now' brigade.

Yes, there are a few glaring ommissions, some bizaare choices and some bouts do get re-told a little differently from what was recorded at the time ( i keep my boxing issues). However overall this is an interesting piece for the boxing enthusiast.

If got for he right price highly reccomdended!
