Every boxing fan will want to own this "Bible of Boxing", especially in this revised and updated edition.

Through An Illustrated History of Boxing, fans will experience the careers of fighters in every weight class, from flyweight to heavyweight. They can relive the days when Jack Dempsey, Max Baer, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, and Mike Tyson ruled the heavyweights, and witness Evander Holyfield's rise to the top of the heap. All the key matches in all divisions are described.

Here in one stunning volume is the vast panorama of boxing history, frombare-knuckle fighting through the adoption of the Marquis of Queensberry rules -- which laid the foundation of modern boxing -- to the present day.

An Illustrated History of Boxing, written by the former owner-editor of The Ring magazine, Nat Fleischer, with the assistance of noted sportswriter Sam Andre, was first published in 1959. Since then it has undergone several revisions to keep up with the changing sport. This newest edition has been updated by Nigel Collins, author of Boxing Babylon and the current editor of The Ring.
