Dark Trade is real good, I recommend it.

It was around the early to mid 90s and covers different fighters. Toney, De La Hoya, Tyson, Hamed, Jones.

Anything by Jack Newfield is worth it. Black Lights by Thomas Hauser (ignore the part where they try to convince that Kevin Rooney would have destroyed Alexis Arguello if not for weight problems). The Sixteenth Round by Rubin "Hurricane" Carter. Probably my favorite is The Devil And Sonny Liston by Nick Tosches.
