    Ones I recommend...

    Dark destroyer: Nigel Benn

    Four Kings: Leonard, Hagler, Hearns and Duran and the Last Great Era of Boxing

    If you just want a boxing book read War Baby, by Kevin Mitchell (not the boxer), shows boxing as it really is. My best of the above

    All of the above, War Baby is my personal fav, but also really enjoyed Eubank's and also Michael Watson's books.

    Four Kings is really good but i wound 'nt recommend" My view from the corner" by Anglo Dundee I was really looking forward to it but when I finished it I was pretty underwhelmed.There seemed like so more he could have said instead of the very bland re-telling of the fights which he gave.
