Synopsis

Boxiana: Volume 1 is an anthology of never before published boxing writing and takes an in-depth look at the sport's past, present and future. Original, startling and thought-provoking, Boxiana examines pugilistic themes, characters and issues ranging from the personal to the universal, combining exclusive interview material with meticulous research. The book's fresh approach will both intrigue and delight all serious followers of boxing. Featured in Volume 1: comic book legend Trevor Von Eeden analyses the significance of Jack Johnson; Mario Mungia tries his hand at amateur boxing; Ben Williams uncovers his grandfather's bareknuckle boxing career; Matthew Ogborn considers the issues boxers face on retirement; James Hernandez catches up with Jon Thaxton; rising light heavyweight Chris Hobbs recounts his life in the military and the ring; Rowland Stone recalls a heady night in 1992; Corey Quincy attempts to solve the Wladimir Klitschko conundrum and Luke G. Williams examines the meteoric rise of Deontay Wilder and the under-rated career of Chris Byrd. No other boxing anthology can match BOXIANA's eclectic range of subject matter, or its in-depth examination of issues and characters from boxing's past, present and future. Boxiana will appeal to fans of adult boxing and sports, as well as students of sports and boxing history.
