Bucceroni, Dan  
Easy Boxing for Self-Defense
 Picture
Publisher: Daniel M. Bucceroni, 1964 Blue Bell, PA.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Soft cover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall In a seven-year professional career, after numerous amateur titles, Bucceroni left boxing with a career of 52 fights, 45 wins, 30 by KOs, 15 decisions, and 7 losses. "Because so many young men are injured while learning the art of self-defense, I felt it necessary to write this pamphlet. When joining different organizations and traveling to gyms, these men place their confidence in the hands of unqualified instructors. As a result of this inferior training, they are hurt mentally and physically. It is imperative that the analysis and theory of boxing be explained for self-defense. In this pamphlet, I have explained such subjects and topics as the theory of training techniques, the foundation of simple boxing, the necessary boxing positions and movements and the real secrets of punching power." Well illustrated. 33 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Paper wrappers; stapled binding.

Appr.: | AUD 24.54 CAD 23.20 EUR 16.39 GBP 12.78 JPY 2,000.00 MXN 250.00 ZAR 222.22

Tiberi: The Uncrowned Champion
 Picture
Publisher: The Jared Company, 1992 Wilmington, DE.
ISBN: 0898025982 Book. Book condition: Good. Good to Very Good. Hardcover SIGNED 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall INSCRIBED by Dave Tiberi on half-title page: "Bob, / from one champ / to another. Best of success / in weightlifting. God bless you. / Your friend, / David 'TNT' Tiberi / 12/10/92". "Ten years from now, fans will speak about the sport of boxing in relation to its existence 'B.T.' and 'A.T.' - Before Tiberi and After Tiberi. An outrageous split decision on February 8, 1992, of a nationally televised match in Atlantic City, caused the boxing world to suffer a series of combinations and blows from which it will never recover. The Uncrowned Champion follows the career of Delaware's Dave 'TNT' Tiberi, from his first amateur bout at age seven beside the dusty stables of Delaware Park Race Track. The jagged trail leads through the sweaty, smoke-filled gyms of Philly and Jersey, to 'the fight, ' the boxer's ultimate showdown, amidst the glitzy backdrop of Donald Trump's Taj Mahal. It was there, late on a snowy Saturday afternoon, that the Delaware challenger humiliated and dominated James Toney, up until then the International Boxing Federation's undisputed middleweight champion. Find out how the youngest of seven fighters in a family of 14 rose to the top of boxing's elite. Discover how the controversial decision ignited a state, infuriated the nation's sports fans and prompted an official U.S. Senate inquiry. Read how federal investigators ripped away the shroud of secrecy and placed a microscope on the controversial and bizarre sport that is controlled by a wealthy and powerful handful of promoters and managers. Learn what it's like to be inside the boxer's mind, while he's preparing for a championship, as he's entering the ring, when he's exchanging blows. Feel what he feels at the moment the decision is announced. The Uncrowned Champion delivers the opinions of fans and foes, politicians and promoters, fellow fighters, and angry boxing industry officials. Examine the testimony about the sport presented before the investigating subcommittee, and learn why Alex Wallau, ABC-TV's ringside analyst, referred to the outcome of the Tiberi-Toney bout as 'the most disgusting decision I've ever seen." Andy Ercole is a long-time Delaware resident and was Dave Tiberi's manager. Ed Okonowicz is a well-known Delaware author. 244 pages. Book is in GOOD or better condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD or better condition.

Jones, Jimmy  
King of the Canebrakes
 Picture
Publisher: Southern Press, Inc., 1969 Macon, GA.
Book. Book condition: Fine. Near Fine. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "Not many American have had the privilege of crowding as much action into a relatively short life span as the late William Lawrence Stribling of Macon, Ga. He started boxing in a vaudeville skit with his brother at the age of four and had engaged in 286 professional fights before he died on Oct. 3, 1933, at the relatively youthful age of 28. Remarkable was the versatility of this young man - he was a skillful airplane pilot, star basketball player, swimmer, golfer and motorboat racer. But boxing was his game and he was one of America's leading 'trial horses' in the sport when it was in its heyday during the so-called 'golden twenties', the days when the likes of Jack Dempsey, Jack Sharkey, Gene Tunney and Max Schmeling were in their prime. Bobby Jones, of Atlanta, another native Georgian, was the king of golf and Big Bill Tilden ruled the tennis world. It was a day of champions and W. L. Stribling might well have been one with better luck. Although losing his two world heavyweight title bids with Sharkey and Schmiling, Stribling lost only a dozen of nearly 300 Professional fights and was never counted out during an exciting 12-year careerthat ended in his tragic death following an auto-motorcycle collision near his home town of Macon. All America mourned this young sportsman and on De3c. 10, 1965, he was voted a member of Georgia's Athletic Hall of Fame. When one thinks of Young Stribling, his daring and sportsmanship, he gropes for words to describe him and, like everything else, finds him perfectly described long years ago by the poet, A. E. Housman who wrote in his famous lines to an 'Athlete Dyi9ng Young.'" Illustrated. 134 pages. Book is in FINE condition. Dust jacket is in NEAR FINE condition.
