Book review

Philadelphia has long been called the number one fight town in the world. The relentless fighting style of its boxers has thrilled fans over the years. Twenty-seven champions have come from the city over the course of more than a century. ÝÝPhiladelphiaís Boxing Heritage: 1876ñ1976 retraces the legacy of determined battlers such as Joe Frazier, Benny Bass, Gil Turner, Bob Montgomery, and Bennie Briscoe. Philadelphia has also produced legions of highly skilled craftsmen such as Tommy Loughran, Jack OíBrien, Midget Wolgast, Harold Johnson, and Joey Giardello. In 1926, the Gene TunneyñJack Dempsy heavyweight championship bout was witnessed by more than one hundred thousand fans. In 1956, Rocky Marciano brought his guns to town and won the heavyweight title from Jersey Joe Walcott. In 1971, Philadelphia-trained Joe Frazier won the ìFight of the Centuryî from Muhammad Ali at Madison Square Garden in New York. Philadelphiaís Boxing Heritage: 1876ñ1976 showcases these legends and retraces their championship bouts through more than two hundred dazzling photographs. ÝÝ
