BOOK REVIEW ; BELOVED WARRIOR ; THE RISE AND FALL OF ALEXIS ARGUELLO BY CHRISTIAN GIUDICE

This is by far the best boxing book I have read this year. Author Christian Giudice ( Hands Of Stone ; Roberto Duran), has scored another victory with this in depth look at the popular yet tragic Alexis Arguello.

The author covers Arguello’s life from the beginning until the bitter end. His fights are well documented here but the book itself goes beyond just his great accomplishments in the ring. It lets us take a look at the man. A man who at times was very complex to say the least.

This book was very well researched and included are some vintage photos.Also the forward is written by Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini who shares his thoughts on this legendary fighter and man. If you are a fan of boxing this book is a must for your bookshelf. If you are a fan of Arguello…Well, what are you waiting for ?
