Book Review



By Steve Canton

Forward by Al Berstein

My book, Steve Canton’s Tributes, Memories & Observations of the Sweet Science is out and doing exceptionally well in both the boxing and mainstream communities. Comprised of thirty-seven chapters, 370 pages and 550 pictures, it is a lifetime collection of boxing and human interest stories which takes the reader on an unforgettable and sometimes emotional journey seldom seen. It chronicles many of the lesser known boxers, and others associated with the sport, and details their contributions not only to boxing but to society as well. Included also are personal tributes to many well-known characters and observations and suggestions to improve the sport. For those interested in statistics a detailed boxing record of the fighters whose stories are told is included. Hall of Fame commentator Al Bernstein wrote the foreword.

“Steve Canton’s Tributes, Memories & Observations of the Sweet Science,” one of the best new books of the year!

“One of the best boxing books I have ever read … you won’t be able to put it down once you open the front cover.” Harold Lederman, HBO Sports

“Canton, who has spent a lifetime in boxing as a boxer, trainer, cutman, promoter, commentator, writer and historian, draws on that experience with stories of great depth, detail and passion. A must read.” – Dan Cuoco, Director, International Boxing Research Organization (IBRO)

“Steve Canton is a true boxing person. His stories are from the heart and from experience. As a writer he is gifted. This book is a great read and highly recommended.” – Roy Jones Jr., All-time great boxing world champion
