If you, like the rest of us here at Doghouse Boxing have enjoyed William Dettloff's work at The Ring magazine, the Ring’s website, ESPN.com or HBO.com, you might also like his new book, “Ezzard Charles: A Boxing Life.”
This is the first biography ever of the great Ezzard Charles, whom The Ring called the best light heavyweight who ever lived.
Pre-order it now at Amazon and learn everything there is to know about “The Cincinnati Cobra,” from his days as a child in Lawrenceville, Georgia, to his frustrated attempts to get a shot at the middleweight and light heavyweight crowns, to his unlikely tenure as the heavyweight champion of the world. Along the way you’ll learn about his lovably irascible co-manager, Jake Mintz; his trainers, Jimmy Brown and Ray Arcel; the gangsters who ran boxing, Jim Norris, Frankie Carbo and Blinky Palermo; and, of course, the fighters who contributed to his legend: Archie Moore, Charley Burley, Jimmy Bivins, Joey Maxim, Jersey Joe Walcott, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano and all the rest.
If you’re a fan of Charles, of boxing, or of 1950’s sports in America, we think you’ll enjoy this book.
