Favorite Book: "The Ring Record Book" by Nat Fleisher

"I've always enjoyed sitting down in a chair and thumbing through the pages of "The Ring Record Book". I like learning about all of the fighters, seeing their ring records, learning their hometowns and looking at their photos. You know, back in the day, I knew and fought a lot of those guys."
