Boxing In Black And White

A non fiction book by

"Boxing's like an addiction, it just gets in the blood." --Bobby Howard, trainer and ex-middleweight fighter

Punch-by punch accounts of key heavyweight fights involving such champions as Jack Johnson, Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Joe Frazier, and Muhammad Ali reveal the passion and danger of the ring, as well as the impact of what happens there.

Peter Bacho makes his living as an author and professor of Asian-American literature, but throughout his life he has been a fight fan, a fighter, a trainer, and a student of boxing. It is those personal experiences that frame this book. Then, while taking readers through the action in the most thrilling prize fights of the century, he shows how those bouts defined the racial and social tension of their times.
