Description - Boxing's Hall of Shame by Thomas Myler

In Boxing s Hall of Shame, Thomas Myler tells the inside stories of the real fight game. He reveals the sport s heroes and villains, mobsters and fixers, its shame and sorrows, providing the reader with a ringside seat at boxing s greatest and most controversial contests along the way. This no-holds-barred volume includes the enraged Mike Tyson taking a chunk out of Evander Holyfield s ear; Roberto Duran s baffling retirement against Sugar Ray Leonard; the Riddick Bowe Andrew Golota fiasco that ended in an ugly full-scale riot; Sonny Liston whose mobster background was not unknown to boxing authorities going down under Muhammad Ali s phantom punch; and Jake LaMotta s botched dive against Billy Fox, which turned the Raging Bull into boxing s bad boy overnight.

Buy Boxing's Hall of Shame by Thomas Myler from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
