5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, excellent knowledge and full of nostalgia, 9 Jan 2014
This review is from: The Hate Game: Benn, Eubank and British Boxing's Bitterest Rivalry (Hardcover)
This is a really well written book, by a guy who clearly knows his stuff about his subject matter. It's more than just a bio of the two fights (the second one was a bit rubbish anyway) but more of a complete timeline as regards to the lead up to how these two guys got to be where they were, the actual fights, the aftermaths and what became of them afterwards. Great stuff about other protagonists of the day too, such as Watson, Collins, Graham the tough-guy Americans, the promotors, the trainers. There is also a funny paragraph about Daley Thompson which made me think that he was probably a very strange man indeed. It's fast paced, and deals only in the interesting bits of the parallel stories. Some boxing books tend to disappear up their own back-passages but Dirs gets what the reader wants and delivers. A better book on boxing, I've not read. Highly recommended.
