Default Re: best boxing books and why

joe louis's autobiography is one of the most enjoyable books i ever read....it is written in exactly the same way as joe would speak so you end up almost feeling like you are sat at a bar for a few hours with joe beside you telling you these great stories from his life....and it is warts and all...what was happening inside and outside the ring...porn star girlfriend, drugs, how he fell out of love with boxing but had to continue defending his title when he couldnt get his head or heart into it...
its worth a read by any fan of his.
