The sport of boxing, with its peculiar blend of artistry and raw aggression, has always enthralled large sections of the public. This book follows the sport from its origins in 18th-century England, where early pioneers such s James Figg fought challengers with bare knuckles, to the 21st century, concentrating on the careers of its greatest practitioners. The colorful and often dramatic lives of fighters such as Sugar Ray Robinson, Muhammad Ali, Oscar De La Hoya and many others are covered in detail, and their exploits are brought to life in more than 200 contemporary illustrations.
