The Muhammad Ali biography by Thomas Hauser is a very good read.

I've read quite a few, most of the biographies I found disappointing, however there are some good ones. But by enlarge the best boxing books I have read are...

Boxing Babylon
Men of Steel

and I think the cleverest and most interesting by a mile was Facing Ali, Stephen Blunt.
a completely different approach to a boxing great from the place of his opponents, mind you there's not too many fighters that that approach would work best for, so yet another book on Ali was needed.

But what a book!

Sugar Ray Robinsons autobiography is just fantastic it's a must read. One of the most diss appointing is Oscar De La Hoya's, so little detail about training and fighting, shame because I'm a huge fan

"In This Corner - Forty-two World Champions Tell Their Stories" by Peter Heller is easily the best boxing book of all time. Trust me.

"Fire and Fear" by Jose Torres is also good.
or Angelo Dundee's "A view from the corner"
