But they were not so grave with which to spoil the book for me.
The issue Russell Peltz has with the aforementioned bout with Alfonso Hayman, IMO is easily explained, even though, the writers still made some obvious flubs.
In essense, they combined two bouts. The Alfonso Hayman bout on April 3rd, whihc was indeed televised by Prism and the Harold Weston bout that was on May 20th, which WAS televised by CBS. This is an example of an honest, but unfortunate mistake of mixing up fights and dates.
I can understand Mr. Peltz personal stake in being annoyed by this error, but this should not be an example of why anyone should or would steer clear of this book. The Good far outweighs the bad.
Along with George Kimball's Four Kings, I think the Hughes' provided boxing fans with an excellent companion to sit next to Kimball's book on anyone's boxing book shelf.
Definitely recommend this to Boxing fans and specifically Tommy Hearns fans.
Cost and content, I think it is well worth the purchase.
