Default Which fighter deserves a good book?

Read a thousand books on boxing, just finished Tommy Hearns Hitman and starting Mills Lanes Lets get in on, but one fighter who deserves a quality tome dedicated to them is Nigel Benn as War Baby is a cracking read but is about one fight, and the only other thing out there is garbage and doesnt look out of place on a car boot sale...''Go on I'll take 50p''.
Something along the lines of Hands of stone that can put some colour to the Dark Destroyer.
The bones of the story is there, street kid joins army, carries the squaddie fitness and mentality into the pro ring, early setback against Michael Watson, the american re-invention, the shady aquaintances, the rivalries and wars, the all-action entertainer and of course culminating in the McClellan war, it just needs someone like Hugh Macillavenny who can translate the raw violence.
Maybe a Lloyd Honeyghan one, and possibly a Tyson book that doesnt rely on the cliches.

Benn book would be awesome as long as it ended the second his career did

Tapia deserved a good book - BUT he has one

Tyson book - Nature of the Beast - Excellent, excellent book

Default Re: Which fighter deserves a good book?

One day I'll write a book on the Harada-Jofre-Olivares-Rose-Rudkin era of Bantams, which would take in all the fighters key fights and career, similar in structure to Four King but called 'The Tiny Terrors' (or something like that): as the greatest era in one of the greatest and deepest divisions in the sport, it deserves to be recalled.
