Default New Book - Pugilatus - Ted Spoon

It is with no small amount of pleasure that I announce the release of my new book Pugilatus, available here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Reaching from Jack Broughton to Froch-Groves, this ambitious project intends to open eyes as well as entertain.

Books on the history of the sport tend to be disjointed, cluttered, and rarely provide anything more than an introduction. Pugilatus formally introduces you to our bare-fisted pioneers, ties the last generation onto a blooming Queensberry scene and then proceeds to carefully juxtapose fighters and themes right up to 2013.

Youíre going to get a real sense of progression and intimacy. Itís fighting styles over records. Relevance over quantity. And all this plays its part in supporting the main drive of the book; boxing, despite its many tweaks, is ultimately a homogenous sport. Each era has deep similarities.

In the final chapter await 15 fight stories. I dare say these will be the most in-depth fight reports youíll ever read.

Apologies to those who've tried to order.

It should be regularly stocked from now on.

As it stands shipment to the US will just about bump it up to the list price.

Alternatively those interested could PP me the list price for a direct sale.
