Genius is seldom recognized in its own time. In the case of Ezzard Charles it took several decades but late really is better than never. Ezzard Charles: A Boxing Life traces Charles' early life in a small country town all the way to his fights with Jersey Joe Walcott, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano and more during the wild, glamorous and wonderfully dirty business of boxing in the 1950s, one of the sport's last Golden Ages.

Readers will learn about Charles' frustrated attempts to get a shot at the 175-pound world title; his three wins over the legendary Archie Moore; and his futile struggle to win the respect of boxing fans spoiled by Louis' power and charisma.

This is the book today's sports' fans have been waiting for - the one that answers their questions about the man The Ring magazine called the greatest light heavyweight who ever lived. For reasons no one can quite explain, there has never been a biography of one of modern prizefighting's most revered and skilled practitioners - until now. Ezzard Charles: A Boxing Life is a long overdue addition to the vast collection of good literature covering the fight game.
