Default New Book - “Boxing in New Mexico”

Boxing in New Mexico 1868-1940
By: Chris Cozzone and Jim Boggio
Publisher: McFarland
Pages: 440 Pages


Here's a review but maybe a bit biased as the writer is part of fightnews


Quote:
Boxing fans can be forgiven if the idea of another regional boxing history book doesn’t excite them right off the bat. Most tend to fall into two categories: an over glossed pamphlet that rehashes well known boxing stories or a book long on facts but short on drama. A book that people buy only to look in the index to find what page “Uncle Charlie” appears on. But to lump the newest regional boxing book in that category would be a tremendous mistake. Boxing in New Mexico 1868-1940 isn’t just the best regional boxing history book to come out this century…it may very well be the best boxing history book period.

So....what's it all about then, who features etc etc?

The Gaspar Ortega book is out now but I haven't read it yet. Apparently features all the great 60s TV fighters

Only got info that's on link - it was only posted about 3hrs ago & I stumbled on it.

It mentions:

Hugh McSparron, the lightweight champion of New Mexico
John H. Shanssey
A fight going for over 6hrs (185 rounds) between Barney Duffey & Jack ?
Ray “Young Wallace” Kinney
Johnson - Flynn fight in 1912

it's a bit sparse on info at moment - hopefully google will allow the search feature so we can have a look.
