About the book:

Rocky Marciano turned to boxing at age twenty-five, after a failed attempt to fulfill his dream of becoming a big league baseball player. Managers and trainers considered him too small to get in with the heavyweights. His awkward style, in order to compensate for his stubby arms, found him victorious, fight after fight. Containing some of the best fight descriptions ever written, this book recounts the savagery of his fights with Joe Louis, Ezzard Charles, Jersey Joe Walcott, and every other big name fighter of his era. He climbed to the top of the heavyweight division and became champion. The book also discusses his retirement, as he would have dinner with the President one night, and a Mafia Don the next.
