Summary

Summary

Name your top hundred anything and you'll get a hundred arguments. But no one will dispute the rights of legends like Muhammed Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson, Jack Dempsey, Marvin Hagler or Bob Fitzsimmons to be included in this fascinating book. Perhaps two-thirds of the boxers selected will earn their place in anybody's choice of the century's greats. It is the last third that cause the arguments. But such healthy debate is part of the excitement of boxing.

In choosing his one hundred best boxers, Patrick Myler has cast aside any consideration of titles...the only criterion is that every man had the mark of greatness. The result is a fascinating evaluation of the very best of this century's boxers.
