Description

Originally published in 1915, this is a memoir of Eugene Corri's career as a boxing referee. He refereed all the top fights of the day and speaks at length of both the fights themselves and the boxers who fought them, all of whom he knew well. Well-illustrated with black and white photographs, this is a fascinating glimpse into a vanished era. Many of these earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents include: The Lucky-Tub of Memory; The Carpentier; Gunboat Smith Fight; Barbardier Wells, with a Word or Two about Carpentier; Robert Fitzsimmons; Willie Ritchie and Freddy Welsh; Matt Wells, Sereant Basham,and Johnny Summers; Wilde The Wizard; Some Boxing Storeys; More Boxing Storeys; Boxing in the War.
