"The Fight Doctor"


    The Fight Doctor

    by Ferdie Pacheco M.D.


    Boxing's colorful history is filled with chapters of high drama and  simmering controversy.  Many boxing fans are familiar with the outcome of the most memorable bouts, but few know the secrets surrounding them.

   In the 12 Greatest Rounds of Boxing: The Untold Stories, Ferdie Pacheco, M.D. - the longtime physician and cornerman for Muhammad Ali  and the television analyst known worldwide as the Fight Doctor -not only  selects the dozen best rounds ever fought, but reveals what went  on behind the scenes at these fights, from chicanery and Mob influence to  romantic liaisons and the zaniness that seems to go hand in glove  with boxing.

   The book's fascinating "untold stories" are related by Pacheco and a  renowned group of boxing experts. Pacheco and company offer  an intimate glimpse of boxing's inimitable characters and the often bizarre  world they inhabit.  Through scores of stunning photographs, including  many rare prints, that world comes vividly to life.
