Riassunto: Earnie Shavers, recently honored by the International Boxing Association as Puncher of the Century. But it's Shavers' life story that really packs a wallop as the anvil-fisted pugilist pulls no punches in his autobiography, Earnie Shavers: Welcome to the Big Time. Shavers takes readers through the amazing journey of his life, starting in the segregated Deep South when the Ku Klux Klan drove him and his family from their Alabama home. After his family relocated to Ohio, Shavers excelled in high school athletics. Unfortunately, he became friends with hoodlums and appeared headed for a life of crime until a chance encounter led him to the boxing ring. Shavers eventually established himself as a knockout sensation and squared off with other legendary heavyweights like Muhammad Ali, Larry Holmes, and Ken Norton. Shavers tells readers of his easy-come, easy-go fortune, his six marriages, and his conversion to Christianity. Earnie Shavers: Welcome to the Big Time will provide hours of entertainment for boxing fans and sports fans alike.
L'autore: Mike Fitzgerald is an established biographer of boxing legends who co-authored former heavyweight champion Ken Norton's books Going the Distance and Welcome to the Big Time: The Earnie Shavers Story.
