Book Review

By Jim Amato / Senior Boxing Writer

The Art of Boxing; Your Guide to the Sweet Science

Author: Bobby Mayne


Let me say that this is the best boxing training manual I have ever read. I have read many in the past including Nat Fleischer’s fine series. In my humble opinion,this tops them all. The author Bobby Mayne is a former boxer and now a trainer. This book must have taken hours and hours to put together. The end result is over 200 pages of instructions and photos. A truly priceless volume of knowledge.

The author leaves no stones unturned as he touches on every aspect of the Sweet Science. I was amazed at how well Mayne broke down every move, every punch and counter punch. Offensive strategy, defensive strategy… it’s all in this fine book. This is a must have for every fan of the art of boxing. A one of a kind masterpiece.

  1. Are there any accompanying videos to the book? I have seen some pretty good stuff posted on Youtube, just wondered if Bobby had a channel?
