Hi, I was wondering if you guys and gals could help me. I'm doing research for a boxing-centric project and I'm attempting to find some type of book or work of print that provides a history of boxing beyond the United States. I'm trying to gain a global sense of boxing, but all the books I'm finding focus on the U.S.

I was hoping you folks could make some suggestions. Any book, article or source recommendations would be very much appreciated. Thanks and I hope to get your input.

I've searched the web and haven't found much, unfortunately. I'll keep looking around online, but any ideas from boxing fans on this forum would be terrific.

Well, what exactly are you searching for information wise? Are you looking for just other countries involvements or what?

Boxing traditions of European and Asian countries, notable fighters. Perhaps a book that profiles the greatest fighters beyond the United States.

They don't care where they come from when they make articles on the greatest fighters of all time. US just has the most. It's like looking up the greatest ping pong players and thinking there's a bias because everyone is Chinese.

Oh, ok. Well, get the book "Boxing's Greatest Fighters" by Bert Sugar. The new edition (I think 2006). It has fighters from other races along with American ones. It will give some detail about their lives and careers. A few big names you should look up are: Roberto Duran, Julio Caesar Chavez, Ken Buchanan,Lennox Lewis, Khasio Galaxy, Wilfredo Gomez, Carlos Monzon, and Jeff Fenech. Oh, another good book that has all of the hall of fame fighters up to 2006 is the Boxing Register 4th edition. It is an international book.

actually he was born in England..... Lennox Lewis moved to Canada when he was 12.

Canadians are Americans cause they are in North America. Anybody in North and South America is technically American.
