An examination of the shadowy world of boxing. Donald McRae tracks the strange and interlocking lives of contemporary figures such as Mike Tyson, Naseem Hamed and Don King, and reveals how they are haunted by themes of race and celebrity, poverty and wealth, violence and ***, crime and death.

Just to add. Obviously there's plenty in there about Pintor as well as the focus on Owen - so there's your Mex angle.

Dunno about that but it's a very well written and moving book - loads of first hand accounts. Chapters of his life leading up to that night interspersed with descriptions of each round leading to the tragedy and continuing afterwards.
It'll bring a lump to your throat.
Ask Gazoc - I think he metioned he'd read it last time I recommended it.
