I'm starting on Beloved Warrior: The Rise and Fall of Alexis Arguello. It's a good read so far.

The last read for me was a biography of Joe Bugner that I got from the library. I can't remember who wrote it. One of the few heavyweights in history who I really enjoyed watching. The book was decent, not earth-shattering.

Bugner? Strange choice of HW to like...

I could definitely go for the Arguello book though

if you havent read Raging Bull, that is a page turner alright.
i also enjoyed 'Sugar Ray' by dave anderson/ray robinson, interesting read.
Sam Langford: Boxing's Greatest Uncrowned Champion is also real good, really amazing how detailed the book is, very interesting read.

Thanks for the tips mate will keep them in mind for next time. The missus picked me up Sugar Ray Leonard The Big Fight today and Four Kings by George Kimball though so will have to smash them first.

Anyone read these, thoughts?
