Default just finished Teddy Atlas's book

I loved it, shi t was gully as hell. A good % of the book involved beating people up while looking out for people and struggling to get by in the process. Reminded me of me lol

What are some other really dope boxing bio's or autobio's?

I was walkin down the street in Prague a few years back and passed this military surplus/memorabilia store. The ONE book they had on display in the window was Teddy's book, in Czech. Pretty funny.

It's not a biography or autobiography, but I've got a compilation of my boxing writing available on Amazon right now (or you can DM me and get it directly in case you want a signed copy).

Actually it was a good read and I enjoyed it, I tell you some of the sh1t he put up with regarding Michael Moore would definitely test a trainers threshold...
