Nope. I'm of the market for boxing books at the moment. Got Bare Fists, James J Corbett and Chaos, Corruption, Courage and Glory "cluttering up" (not my words) the to do pile. I would be interested to hear about it though, a proper treatment of Billy Conn would be most welcome.

I've read it and its a very good, if slight, read, I'd recommend it although you may want to wait for the one later in the year, that may be a more detailed bio

There's a movie by the same name. It stunk. Henry Armstrong was in it for marquee value but to no avail.

I think I am going to get it. Also looking into Harry Otty's book on Charley Burley.
