Description
In 1956, Floyd Patterson became, at age 21, the youngest boxer to claim the title of world heavyweight champion. Later, he was the first ever to lose and regain that honor. Here, the author of Backyard Brawl, Chasing the Rodeo, and Boxing Shadows chronicles the life of "the Gentle Gladiator," an athlete whose reputation was overshadowed by Muhammad Ali's theatrics and Sonny Liston's fearsome reputation, and a civil rights activist overlooked in the Who's Who of race politics.

"A knockout biography of the best boxer in 1950s and early 1960s America. From winning an Olympic Gold medal to developing the peek-a-boo stance that influenced Muhammad Ali, Patterson was a monumental influence on the boxing profession."óDouglas Brinkley
