AMERICAN SPORTS PUB. CO. 1917    Book Number: 87117    Product format: Hardback

From the arenas of Ancient Rome to modern day bouts, a boxer's success has been measured by his balance, strength and recovery. Judging distance, position, arm movement and fist shape all contribute to a boxer's overall performance in the ring. There are defence tactics and cross-counter moves such as the famous Solar Plexus Knockout or the McCoy Corkscrew. This guide book covers how to box, the science of boxing, hints on training, the way to hit and the rules of boxing, and has superb archive photos of the proper way to clench the fist, holding thumb below line of middle finger joints alongside the improper way, and recounts notable matches between boxers including Les Darcy, Jimmy Clabby and George Chip. There are step-by-step accounts of their moves for readers to learn from, showcasing the sport in its early glory days. 152pp in nostalgic reprint with original archive photos.
