This is a must-have for all boxing fans: the world’s most comprehensive single-volume reference on the sport, now updated to include every major world title fight up to the end of March 2018!

Boxing has produced some of the world’s most colorful athletes, from Jack Johnson and Jake LaMotta to Ali and Tyson. They’re all in this ultimate guide, which covers every aspect of the sport since its rise from the days of illegal big-money challenge matches to the multimillion-dollar televised extravaganzas we enjoy now. Updated to include the world title fights through March 2018, as well as new biographies, it contains fan-delighting details on the status of boxing internationally; the prominent promoters, trainers, and managers; the great stadiums where boxing history was made; and the administrative bodies, rules, culture, and ambience of the fight game–including its tragedies and scandals. A statistical section lists the facts, figures, and oddities of the sport.
