I enjoyed it but it's a book that talks about the crokks, liars , Champions and incredible training and hard work all of the men involved in the "Sweet Science " experienced......
I enjoyed it but count on taking your time reading it and you will not regret it,.
The Face of Boxing is a very extensive boxing collection containing photos and quotes of the Managers, Promoters, Trainers, Broadcast Team and superstar fighters in their glory.
The photographer gives each subject his full attention to bring out the natural characters personality. To the boxing fan this book can serve as either a guide or a tribute pictorial of the superstars and who's who in the boxing world. The list of people in attendance is impressive, this book is not a complete encyclopedia for the fanatics but all in all Holger Keifel has done a highly impressive job giving tribute to faces in the greatest sport in the world.
