What a coincidence, I finished his autobiography last night. Would definitely recommend it as it is a powerful, really engaging read and his raging bull mentality comes through the page as he gives it both barrels.

Very, very tough and determined man who went (and put others) through a hell of a lot. Had to fight against the mob for years before finally submitting to their will to get his crack at marcel cerdan.

Happy birthday to the bronx bull  Smiley
