Beschreibung:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Before I checked out the Charley Burley book, I visualized it to be another life story of a great fighter whose name I became familiar with during the days when I was getting my feet wet in boxing. As I examined the book there was an explosion of names like Billy Conn, Fritzie Zivic, Georgie Abrams, Ezzard Charles, Jimmy Bivins, Cocoa Kid, Holman Williams, Sugar Ray Robinson, and many others who brought back memories of my earliest days around boxing. In addition to thorough coverage of Burley's career, author Allen Rosenfeld gives you a panoramic view of the exciting middleweight picture of the late thirties and forties, which was loaded with nostalgia. I have read lots of boxing books in my time, but this one was hard to put down. Charley Burley's name was ever-present among the leaders of the golden age of middleweights.

Über den Autor: Allen Rosenfeld earned a Master's Degree in History from Wayne State University in Detroit. He then completed the necessary hours for a Ph D at that university, lacking only a dissertation.For the most part he supported his wife and children as a member of the family businessresidential construction. But, during slow periods, he worked as a journalistas a reporter or editorwinning several awards including that of the Michigan Press Association, and as part of a team that won a Neiman for excellence in the field of labor press.In the 1940s and 1950s, he competed, undistinguishedly, as an amateur boxer. And during this period he worked as an assistant to the very distinguished trainer and cornerman Theodore McWhorter, who handled among others George Chuvalo.In the 1950s, Mr. Rosenfeld covered Michigan boxing for the magazine Boxing and Wrestling Illustrated. And during the Thomas Hearns era Rosenfeld was Michigan correspondent for The Ring. His biography of Charley Burley is the product of about five years of work. But in a larger sense it is the product of a youth misspent in gyms and arenas.
