    Default Books/Resources on Boxing Trainers

    I am beginning a collection on books about boxing trainers. I own the following books: (1) Donald Dewey's Ray Arcel, (2) Fried's book on trainers, (3) Anderson's book on trainers, and (4) Angelo Dundee's autobiography. While I don't own it, I have heard that Charley Goldman and Rocky Marciano co-wrote a book on boxing training in the 1950's. Are there any other books on boxing trainers I should keep an eye out for? Thanks for help in advance.

    I recently found another book by a trainer, Jimmy DeForest, who trained Jack Dempsey.

    Check out a copy of Corner Men. It's a great book, made from many interviews with many esteemed trainers and corner man. Each chapter is dedicated to a trainer/cutman from their words. I really enjoyed seeing the picture that Charlie Goldman described when he talked about Stillman's.

    Old boxing gyms are nostalgic, I fight it always fascinating to read what it was like back then.

    The aforementioned book is from the corner men's perspective. If you'd like to read things from the boxer's perspective I recommend reading In This Corner. The interviews are terrific, you can even pick up a few boxing tips, I liked what Jack Sharkey had to say about what learning was like in the gym.

    Chris beat me to it. I didn't read Corner Men or In the Corner cover-to-cover, but read selected chapters. Great insight and stories!
