          An excellent book. I have been a boxing fan for years but there is a lot of stuff in here that I didn't know about. And the photos are fabulous. Especially the inside cover. What a spectacle.!!!

                What a fantastic book! I bought it for my son and ended up reading it myself and particularly enjoyed learning about all the characters of Australian boxing and loved all of the fabulous images.

                  Comments about Boxing in Australia:

                  This book was a delightful surprise!

                  I'm not a boxing fanatic, and will cheerfully admit that I don't follow it at all, but I found this book fascinating. It encompasses a great history of the sport, and what I loved most was the wide range of imagery that brought all the stories to life.
