An Illustrated History of Boxing

Front Cover
Here in one stunning volume is the vast panorama of the "sweet science", from bare-knuckle fighting through the adoption of the Marquis of Queensberry rules -- which laid the foundation of modern boxing -- to the present day. Readers will learn of the careers of fighters in every class, from flyweight to heavyweight, reliving the days when Dempsey, Baer, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, and "Iron Mike" Tyson ruled the heavyweights, and witnessing the rise to the top of Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis. Key matches in all divisions are described.
