I like that phrase. any book on a fighter using primary newspaper reports has been pollacked.

I'm planning on getting the Sullivan book first, then this one. Hardcover, of course...just need to pay off some debt first.

Adam can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the Sullivan book is available in hardcover. At least it wasn't when I ordered it last year!!

Whatever format these books come in, they are great. Well worth reading if you are interested in detailed, documented boxing history.

Yeah, Sullivan is only available in paperback. Don't blame me. That's the publisher's decision. Corbett is available in either hardback or paperback. Credit me for that. I self published it.

What you will get in this book:

More detail and accuracy regarding the fights than ever before. Round by round accounts. Pre and post fight analysis. All based on multiple local next day newspaper reports.

Dates and local reports of fights which were previously unknown, or for which no one was able to provide a description because the dates were unknown, including William Welch, Joe Choynski, Mike Cleary, Dave Eiseman, etc.

Discussion of Corbett’s semi-fixed fights with Frank Smith, Duncan McDonald, and Dave Campbell, using accounts written at the time.

Massive coverage and discussion of the Burke and Choynski bouts, the Peter Jackson fight and subsequent attempts to negotiate a rematch, the Sullivan, McCaffrey, Kilrain, Mitchell, and Sharkey bouts, Corbett’s many exhibitions, and the filmed Courtney bout.

Analysis of race issues and context for how legal issues affected and impeded the fights.

I finished Apollack's Sullivan book last week, it was very impressive! I ordered his Corbett book yesterday.
