Description - Intimate Warfare by Dennis Taylor
Intimate Warfare: The True Story of the Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward Boxing Trilogy traces the lives and careers of two legendary fighters-Micky Ward, a humble, hardscrabble, blue-collar Irishman from Lowell, Massachusetts, and Arturo Gatti, a handsome, flashy, charismatic Italian-born star who was raised in Montreal. Dennis Taylor and John J. Raspanti paint a vivid portrait of these two fighters who ushered each other into boxing lore and formed an unlikely friendship despite their brutal battles in the ring. Gatti's life would end tragically and mysteriously just a few years later, but his name and Ward's remain tied together in boxing history.
In Intimate Warfare, each of the three spectacular fights between Gatti and Ward, two of which were named The Ring magazine's "Fight of the Year," are described in detail. Multiple photographs from the trilogy highlight the intensity and power of these epic collisions. With a foreword by former world champion and International Boxing Hall of Famer Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini, this book will be of interest to all fans of boxing.
