Help kids get the perfect gift for dad and Mom create the perfect holiday for her husband by featuring the brand new boxing book Confusing the Enemy: The Cus D’Amato Story (Acanthus Publishing, 2013).
This holiday season, grab some eggnog, sit by the fireplace, and take a trip back to the boxing glory days that boomers and seniors relish. As the man who responsible for the careers of Mike Tyson, Floyd Patterson, and Jose Torres, many people loved and respected legendary boxing trainer Cus D’Amato. Others thought he was crazy. Confusing the Enemy is a biographical novel that explores the enigmatic life of Cus with all the accuracy possible, given the fact that everybody you talk to has a different version of the facts and a different spin on the truth.
To this day, hundreds of boxing fans think Cus D’Amato think he is one of the greatest trainer/managers who ever lived. Just as many think he so carefully matched his fighters that they ascended to the title more on strategic selection of opponents, than on ring prowess. He is often characterized as a knight in shining armor on a quest to clean-up the sport of prizefighting. Several others suggest he was the biggest gangster of them all. Regardless, of your position, if you enjoy boxing or an amazing story, you will not be able to put this book down.
Featuring a cast of characters that include Mike Tyson, Floyd Patterson, Muhammad Ali, Sonny Liston, Rocky Graziano, and Joe Frazier, this book continues to bring in rave reviews! The Boxing Magazine calls it an “instant classic for the boxing bookshelf.” Boxing World says “The reader truly feels like he is a fly on the wall of gymnasiums, bars, arenas and backrooms while history is unfolding.”
