Over years of reading and collecting 'how to...' boxing books, his is the best I have found. Especially his descriptions of how to throw each punch.
Thanks mate, isnt that a really good but really old fashioned book? Like dosnt he teach to twirl the shoulders to move the hips? When really you should be moving the hips 1st to rotate the torso and then the shoulders for optimum power snap and speed!?
