Default Recommendations for Books by/on Boxing Trainers

I am compiling a collection of books by/on boxing trainers. I own the following: "In the Corner: Great Boxing Trainers Talk About Their Art," by Dave Anderson, "Corner Men: The Great Boxing Trainers," by Ronald Fried, "My View from the Corner," by Angelo Dundee, and "Ray Arcel: A Boxing Biography," by Donald Dewey. I understand John Jarret wrote a book on Ray Arcel, which is on my list to pick up. I intend to buy Freddie Roach's biography when it is released in March. Can anyone recommend any other books on boxing trainers? Perhaps from earlier in boxing's rich history? Thanks!

Not a book, but Ring has an article this month on the gap left by the passing of so many top notch old time trainers recently. I'm a huge Bill Miller fan and I didn't know that he was brought along by Whitey Bimstein.

Thanks for the heads up. Fortunately, I had a chance to read it. The article just touched the surface on trainers in my opinion. I thought there had to be more books, long articles, on trainers of the past, like Futch, Louis's trainer, blanking right now, Brown (?), Charley Goldman, Bimstein etc.

Second the motion on CORNER MEN, r. Was stunned 'n flattered a few years back when Ronald Fried, in doing his research for the book, contacted me about the trainers at Stillman's Gym.

Nice, man. It's a great read.

I imagine if I got my hands on some old Ring Magazines, there could be articles on/by the great trainers. I just don't know which specific magazines to look for.

* 'Master of Men. The Life's Work of William Muldoon. Champion and Trainer of Champions' by Scott Burt. 2011 softcover. I believe you can purchase this from the Bareknuckle Boxing Hall of Fame in New York.

* Seconds Out! Chats About Boxers, Their Trainers & Patrons by Fred Darnell 1924 hardcover.

* 'George Francis, Trainer of Champions' by Graeme Fife 1998 hardcover.

* 'Boxing Coach Manual. The Trainers Guide' by H. Mathews 2006 softcover.

* 'A Trainer's Memories' by John McGuigan 1946 hardcover.

Mr. Moyle, Thank you very, very much. This is exactly the kind of information I was hoping to obtain.

If I may humbly ask your opinion, who were the top 5-10 greatest trainers in boxing history?

Different strokes for different folks.
Larry Holmes said "Eddie don"t holla" as criticism of Eddie Futch

At the end of the day Cus seems to be on the genius level.
