The Lost Art of Boxing by Rick Farris


"Today we have a lot of well conditioned athletes competing in professional boxing. Sadly, most of the training today focuses on athleticism, which is only part of what makes a great fighter. What we are lacking is true boxing skills, mastery of a brilliant art. The truth be known, there are few skilled teachers of this art today. No disrespect to the trainers who share their time & knowledge with young fighters, however, you can't teach what you don't know. For those of you who appreciate the best of boxing, we must turn around and look back in time. Here are a few masters of what has become "a lost art" . . . Robinson, Armstrong, Pep, Duran, Leonard (Benny & Sugar Ray) and a few more. Enjoy!"" - Rick Farris
