A collection of fight stories told by one of the leading boxing writers in the country, who has chosen the most outstanding cases where famous contests have had controversial endings and the referee’s decision has been the subject of debate ever since.
Each of these historic ring batles gave rise to argument as to whether the referee was right in the course he took, whether ha acted in strict accordance with the correct interpretation of the rules, or whether he lost his head in the excitement of the moment and so rendered a verdict that to this day many boxing enthusiasts consider questionable.
All the big names of fistiana are here: Jack Dempsey, Gene Tunney, Georges Carpinter, Ted(kid)Lewis, Max Baer, Young Stribling, Nenny Leonard, Bombadier Billy Wells, Marcel Cerdan, Benny Lynch and many others, and this book gives the reader a ringside seat as they re-fight their famous battles.
