Book Recommendation: Tales from The Vault

One hundred of boxing’s greatest — but underrated and forgotten — classics are relived in a vivid and highly descriptive collection. Boxing history’s best brawls, shootouts, wars of attrition, sudden endings, controversies, upsets, comebacks and 
grudge matches are laid out over 10 chapters consisting of 10 fights each. Every match includes historical context, detailed fight action, strategic analysis, epilogues and official CompuBox punch counts, many of which will be seen for the 
very first time.

Many of boxing’s greatest champions are included yet one chapter is entirely devoted to pulsating undercard contests that rival the stars in terms of action and drama. This is a book that can be taken either in gulps or nibbles, for each fight is an entity unto itself. Whether you are a general sports fan who seeks to know more about “The Sweet Science” or a devotee of boxing history, this book by award winning boxing writer Lee Groves is for you.
