The fighting Blacksmith & Prizefighter. Are there more & what do you recomend.
I recomend Bob Fitzsimmons " His Life and Battles " by Richard K. Fox.

Richard Fox was a boxing fan editor and chief of the Police Gazette Magazine. Fox was quite familiar with Fitzsimmons. Indeed Fox saw the fighting blacksmith in the ring on more than one occasion. The Police Gazette Magazine was the red light magazine of its day which focused on police matters, wild-west outlaws, strippers, and boxing.
