Name: Johnny Bos

Favorite Book: "In This Corner...!" by Peter Heller

"The book by Pete Heller, "In This Corner" was my favorite. It went through the different boxing eras with Gunboat Smith in the 1915s talking about his fights with Dempsey. Then there's Paul Pender telling you about the 1960s with him fighting an old Sugar Ray Robinson. Henry Armstrong talks about fighting in the 1930s. And it's all written in their own vernacular, their own words. Heller got the concept from "Glory of Their Times" by Lawrence Ritter, a book about baseball players."
