Good poster. - ddangerous  Nice looking pup.  Have anyother Pepsi - ABOSWORTH

"The Killings of Stanley Ketchel" by James Carlos Blake is a brilliant piece of historical fiction. It follows whatever facts are known but the author tosses in lots of supposed conversations, events & shenanigans to keep the story flowing.

"My Bleedin' Hooter" by Terry Downes is light years ahead of itself & a great read.

I've just tried to send you a PM there but I don't know if it's sent. I've got this as an ebook (though I've not read it).

I can email it over to you if you'd like?

I recieved 2 Boxing books for Christmas : 'The Dark Trade' by Donald McRae, and Johnny Tapia's autobiography.

Just all but finished Johnny Tapia's book, a really riveting read.

Some books I found great have already been mentioned ("Fire and Fear" by Jose Torres and "In this corner" by Peter Heller).
I can also recommend "Facing Ali" by Stephen Brunt but I am sure TS already read it.
I can also recommend "Facing Tyson" by Ted Kluck in which 15 Tyson opponents talk about how they saw Tyson and everything surrounding their fight.
