A Tiger Rose Out of Georgia Tiger Flowers - Champion of the World

A Tiger Rose Out of Georgia Tiger Flowers - Champion of the World

Author: Bob Mee Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/11/2013

Theodore 'Tiger' Flowers rose above the racist bigotry of the Deep South to become the first African-American middleweight champion of the world. To do it, this Christian family man beat a boxing legend, Harry Greb, in the first of the great sporting cathedrals, Madison Square Garden. It was a victory that stunned the sporting world and made him a household name. Yet within a year he had lost his championship on a decision some said was influenced by Al Capone - and within another year was dead, following a seemingly innocuous operation, in the clinic of a controversial surgeon, to remove lumps and scars above his eyes. Was his death, at the age of 34, an accident, a result of negligence, or something more sinister? And what was behind his white manager's attempt to throw Tiger's widow into an asylum and their daughter into an orphanage? Flowers' inspiring, harrowing story, set against an horrific backdrop of lynchings and routine prejudice, is largely forgotten now but he paved the way for black sporting heroes like Joe Louis, Jesse Owens and Jackie Robinson.

The Heavyweights The Definitive History of the Heavyweight Fighters

Author: Bob Mee Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/03/2006

Heavyweight boxers have always had a special appeal. From the last great bare-knuckle champion, John L. Sullivan, to the modern giants such as Tyson and Lewis, this is the definitive history of the heavyweight fighter. Dozens of books have been written about the champions, but this is the first time the doings, and sometimes undoings, of the main men of the heavyweight division--champions, challengers, and pretenders alike--have been placed side by side in one book.
