    Very excited to announce that EDER JOFRE: Brazil's First Boxing World Champion is now available globally. This is a project which was years in the making. Very proud release this book on one of the greatest pound-for-pound boxers of all-time. A boxer so great, he was regarded as the fighter of the decade in the 1960's by The Ring, as well as being the pound for pound best boxer in a golden era for the sport.

    Eder Jofre: Brazil's First Boxing World Champion is an intimate look into the life and spectacular career of South America's finest boxer, ranked by the International Boxing Research Organization as the greatest bantamweight of all-time. In the 1960s, Jofre went undefeated in his first 50 fights while earning global acclaim as the undisputed world bantamweight champion and the world's best pound-for-pound fighter. After losing his title and retiring for three years, he embarked on arguably the finest comeback in the annals of boxing history, going unbeaten in 25 fights and winning the world featherweight championship. Through intensive research, use of primary sources, and communication with the Jofre family, Eder Jofre's story is told like never before in this over-600-page biography, told for the first time in English. Jofre began life as a shy boy from humble origins, but made it to the top of his profession through hard work, passion, and humility. He became a Brazilian icon and boxing royalty before embarking on a successful political career. The book contains fight-by-fight information on all 78 of Jofre's professional fights, in addition to round-by-round reports, pre-fight build-up, training and post-fight coverage, information on the background of the Jofre-Zumbano family, Jofre's personal life, and over 500 rare photographs.

    Hey man, congratulations! That must be an amazing feeling, to see something you've put a bunch of effort and work into, but at the same time it is something you like doing enough to make it not seem like work (least I would imagine that to be so) and see the project all the way through to the end and now you have the opportunity to see your effort and work in a single physical object you can hold in your hands...Sorry to get all whimsical. Anyway, again, congrats on the finishing that up!

    Thank you, and yes it feels great. I work sort of long hours at my day job but this also became a full-time job so I was working long days basically waking up working and going to sleep. Not for one moment did it feel like a choir though. I loved every minute and all the interactions and friendships built through it all. I plan on doing more biographies of this nature really soon.

    Congratulations, Chris. I hadn't picked up on you being a writer. No wonder you're so well versed on the likes of Zarate and Tito.

    Must be a fabulous feeling, especially as you also have a day job. Well done and then some.

    BUMP to promote actual original content that must've taken years of work. Pages back already is a shame.
