Default Good books written by boxers request.

I know
Championship Fighting

Explosive Punching

and

Aggressive Defense

by Jack Dempsey

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

What are some other good books for technique or dirty fighting in boxing.
Are there old timer books that teach you how to headbutt like Holyfield?

Also I'm not sure if he wrote a book but there was a very dirty fighter who always apologized after fights...Forgot his name.

I know I often give criticism to Dempsey for being overrated, but for a 185 lbs man I doubt many could throw harder.
He could be a very great lightheavy today... (He had fought as a lhw back then too)

If he was around today he would be bigger due to nutrition ect, he was closer to a heavy than a lightheavy

If you can make lightheavy there is no reason besides money or fame to go to heavyweight.(Unless the draining is really hurting you)
But 185 lbs to 175 is pretty easy. (Broner despite being much lighter could already cut 8lbs)
Dempsey has a pretty big frame, but so has Chad Dawson
