Its a great book
was a pretty good read as well for those of you who do that kind of stuff.
I love this book - it pretty much covers every aspect of fighting. lol don't let KK read it he talks about how boxing has been a dying sport for decades.
I fucking bought it and lost it. Time to find it.
lol i went to the library and got it today
really good read, couldnt put it down
He actually portrayed boxing in a positive light though. My two favorite chapters:
Muay thai chapter
Both Boxing related chapters.
BTW whatever happened to Andre Ward? Anyone got some updates??
15-0 from what little info I have on him.
He's been kicking ass and taking names http://www.boxrec.com/list_bouts.php?human_id=281958&cat=boxer
ok i didn't finish the book yet. but apparently he only fought once in thailand against a old fat japanese guy.
the mfs chapters were somewhat interesting. he doesn't talk about sparring with hughes but mostly timmy and he respects timmy a lot
I thought about getting the book, I guess I'll have to now.
Excellent read, I'm hoping he writes another one, though I suppose it can't be as autobiographical as the first one.
He was a Karate champion.
Yeah Tim almost killed him with a spinning back kick.
Colbert's comments afterward were hilarious: http://www.thedailyshow.com/video/i...ch&tag=generic_tag_sam_sheridan&itemId=111243
Yeah you have to finish the book then - the point of the book isn't about "O I learned super awesome fighting and kicked ass" - he keeps mentioning how much he sucks throughout the book - but he's wondering "why we fight" and "why are we as a civilization attracted to combat sports?"
Remember this book was first written before MMA got popular, in fact he has an afterward in his recent edition that addresses the rise of MMA.
