    One thought on “Boxing's Greatest Fighters”

    1. A compendium by Bert Sugar, the heir apparent to Nat Fleischer as boxing s most knowledgeable historian Each of the selections in his pantheon of pugilists gets a nice historical bio and the author s evaluation of their place in the hierarchy Can t agree with all the ratings, but can t argue with the facts displayed, which are considerable.

    2. Fairly new fan of the sweet science Bert Sugar paints a nice picture of who these fighters were and takes you back to the ring itself as he describes the careers and battles of past greats Sometimes can be over the top with his humor but it left me wanting to read about each fighter and their life in and out of the ring.

    3. I ve never really liked Sugar s writing style and attempts at humor, but you have to respect the man s passion for the sport and knowledge The other major issue I have with this book is that I feel that Sugar highly overrates old time fighters that, in my opinion, would not be able to deal with the level of athleticism that today s fighters possess Regardless, this book is a must read for boxing fans.

    4. although a couple of great fighters were exempt, good account of the boxing greats of the past and present.
