Favorite Book: "Boxing's Unforgettable Fights" by Lester Bromberg with forward by Jack Dempsey

"Boxing's Unforgettable Fights" by Lester Bromberg was one of the first books about the sport I ever read--a good "appetizer" for a burgeoning boxing fan. I got to know Lester a little before he passed on. It's a nostalgic choice on my part, but a little nostalgia never hurt anyone."
