He refereed all the top fights of the day and speaks at length of both the fights themselves and the boxers who fought them, all of whom he knew well. Well-illustrated with black and white photographs, this is a fascinating glimpse into a vanished era. Many of these earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
