9780002740296: The Soul of Boxing: What Motivates the World's Greatest Fighters?

What motivates the professional boxer who risks injury and even death every time they climb into the ring? Based on exclusive interviews with Mike Tyson, Frank Bruno and other world class fighters, Phil Shirley uncovers the darker side of those who are paid to inflict harm. Masculinity, brutality, emotional weakness and compassion run side by side with blow by blow action both in the ring and outside it. Here is a unique and fascinating insight into an industry that produces saints and sinners in equal measure.
