4.0 out of 5 stars Is there any glamour in violence?, 20 Oct 2009
This review is from: War, Baby: The Glamour of Violence (Paperback)
For all those who saw this fight, be it on TV or live, it will long live in the memory as being one of the most brutal fights in the history of boxing.
However the legacy of that fight lives on and for Gerald McClennan it is not a good one.
This book details both fighters careers prior to this bout and then of course the aftermath and how it affected them both.
Although it seems that McClennan wasn't necessarily the most pleasant of folk, the stories of dog fighting disgusted me, he certainly didn't deserve to end up the way he did.
I'd like to say that there was a happy ending but the truth is Gerald McClennan is still very much dependent on the care of his Sister and receives little help from the boxing fraternity.
I read this book within a couple of days as it held my interest throughout but I couldn't help but feel sorry for both fighters at the end of it.
