"Hands of Stone" by Christian Giudice, a book about Roberto Duran. It's like a fighting biography, describing in detail his fights, their background, and his own major life events.

"Four Kings: Leonard, Hagler, Hearns and Duran" by George Kimball, a book about the fights between Leonard, Hagler, Hearns and Duran which are now legendary from the 1980s.

im not big on reading but i enjoyed "going the distance" the ken norton story.
As for help on actually boxing, id have to say Box like the pros by Joe Frazier and bill detloff is by far the best.
