In The Greatest Boxing Matches That Never Were, the author talks about the unique culture of professional boxing where corruption, fear, racism and even friendship, prevented many great fight contests from ever happening.

Sports fans fondly recall the greatest boxing matches of all time, but an obsessive conversation among fight fans will also focus on those bouts that should have been , but, for a variety of reasons, never happened.

In The Greatest Boxing Matches That Never Were, the author talks about the unique culture of professional boxing where corruption, fear, racism and even friendship, prevented many great fight contests from ever happening. The book looks at the lost match-ups over the years, and the careers of some of the featured fighters; Muhammad Ali, Larry Holmes, Lennox Lewis and Tim Witherspoon, who was denied a showdown with Iron Mike Tyson by promotor Don King, right up to the much anticipated Floyd Mayweather /  Manny Pacqauio bout the biggest fight in history not to happen.
