    Regulation of Boxing: A History and Comparative Analysis of Policies Among American States
    By Robert G. Rodriguez

    This first nationwide study of boxing regulations in the United States offers an historical overview of the subject, from the earliest attempts at regulating the sport to present-day legislation that may create a national boxing commission. It examines the disparity of regulations among states, as well as the reasons for some of these differences. The work features interviews with boxing officials, analysts and boxers, and includes the results of a national survey of state athletic commission personnel. In-depth case studies of boxing regulations in Nevada and Kansas provide a close look at different states' methods, and Argentina's centralized system of regulation is presented as a comparison to the U.S. approach.

    The Legality of Boxing: A Punch Drunk Love?
    By Jack Anderson

    The first book of its kind dedicated to an assessment of the legality of boxing, The Legality of Boxing: A Punch Drunk Love? assesses the legal response to prize fighting and undertakes a current analysis of the status of boxing in both criminal legal theory and practice.
    In this book, Anderson exposes boxing’s 'exemption' from contemporary legal and social norms. Reviewing all aspects of boxing - historical, legal, moral, ethical, philosophical, medical, racial and regulatory - he concludes that the supposition that boxing has a (consensual) immunity from the ordinary law of violence, based primarily on its social utility as a recognised sport, is not as robust as is usually assumed.

    Boxing Medical Aspects


    This book neither argues for or against the continuation of boxing, but lays out the literature and the body of scientific knowledge that are necessary to provide a meaningful background for the ensuing debate. It provides a comprehensive resource for those who are involved in regulating boxing and those who participate directly, as well as for the medical and scientific communities. Includes carefully quoted case histories and research as well as an extensive body of medical literature on boxing injuries to demonstrate that brain damage is a natural consequence of boxing.
    * Presents in-depth analysis of the phenomenon of "punch drunkness"
    * Includes detailed case histories of the clinical and pathomorphological findings uncovered by current medical research
    * Extensively reviews medical literature

    P.S. Kirk Lawson added another book, The Art of Boxing by Daniel Mendoza. It's a manual on classical english boxing. Take a look if you're interested: The Modern Art of Boxing by Daniel Mendoza (Book) in Sports & Adventure

    Here's a good tome that I found several months back while browsing Google books. I'm surprised that I had forgotten to add it earlier.

    This is a great resource. I have quite a few boxing manuals that I'm going to try and scan/transcribe, starting with Jimmy Wilde's book.

    The main points I got out of it were how he explained the way he approached a fight, as well as how his high KO percentage was made possible because he simply stepped in when others would not. It's a pithy book and I wish I had one by every fighter I am interested in. He doesn't proselytize on boxing technique in general, but explains his own distinct style.

    I usually prefer books written by fighters, or at least as far as boxing manuals are concerned. Peter Heller's book, In this Corner (I think that's the name), is a compilation of fighter's interviews. It's a very entertaining read. I enjoy talking to fighters/ex-fighters, usually about fights and boxing techniques as I value their thoughts and opinions.

    Ya Chris. Sometimes it is just a sentence, or small insight, but it usually bang on and nice when it pertains to you. Eg. I just DL'd the JCC documentary, and picked up a little tip for adding zip to my hooks, which is basic, but something I overlooked. He was telling his son to sit down a bit in his stance, as his opponent was a forward fighter, to increase the power in his hooks to catch him coming in. It was exactly what I personally needed to hear and have already noticed a diff in both power and speed doing it in practice.
