Well I'll be. I should watch that.
Bob Fitzsimmons, Dillian Whyte, Marvin Hagler, Jack Johnson
I think the real question is, who is willing to put the effort into writing a good biography about a boxer he or she is interested in. Any boxer who meets that test is worthy of a biography., IMO.
Sadly this book should have been done 20 yrs ago because most of those Philly boxing people are dead now. His managers trainers other respected Philly people are all gone except for a select few so I really hope this book turns out ok
Lloyd honeyghan a biography written in the 1st person would be fantastic
Freddie Mills would be an interesting one. He had some epic ring battles, won a world rule and if the salacious rumours are to be believed had an even more interesting post boxing career ended on a fittingly mysterious note.
Having a better one on Billy Papke would be great
Ehich ine is out now?
I came here to post this ....it should be on Netflix
I think Bob Satterfield with his fighting career would be interesting. Would have to be a fighter who avoided no one to make it more interesting.
In 1981 his brother came forward. Saad sound out his name was Maxwell Antonio Loach. They didn't have DNA testing back then though.
Money May deserves more votes! Love him or—like most people around here—hate him, the man's had a very interesting, turbulent, and entertaining life, and it would be fascinating to know more about how he developed some of his skills and tactics.
Permit a bizarre pick.
A biography about Joe Grim would make interesting enough reading.
It would probably be a psychological brick in the face of course!
