But the entire book ends up being homage and a tribute to any boxer whose career was cut short through the barbarism and lack of proper fighter care of the 1920's.

A must read, to say the least. http://www.nipperpatdaly.co.uk/nipperboxingbook.html




I've read Bob Mee's "Bare Fists." You'll definitely get the information and insight you need out of this book but.. the writing just SUCKS. He's such a bore and his feeble attempts at humor don't make matters any better. It's seriously painful getting through the entire book.
Thanks!
