Heavyweight Boxing Champions V3
Terry Middleton - This book is dedicated to my grandfather, Clarence Middleton, who boxed while in the United States Army during WWI, and my Father, Dennis Middleton, who boxed while in the United States Navy during WWII.
My first memories were watching my Dad workout when I was a young kid. He used Boxing and weight training routines as a way to exercise after the war.
I picked up on Boxing in 1963 while in high school. I started studying other Martial Arts in 1968 and found that regular training was a challenging and exciting way to learn the Arts while maintaining physical fitness.
I wanted to respectfully condense and summarize the lives of the gloved World Heavyweight Boxing Champions so a person could meet these men, take a mini view of their lives, and learn highlights of their career.
These Boxing pioneers paved the way for athletes to safely box competitively while the average person could box as a physical fitness routine. Boxing is exciting, motivating, and offers the benefit of self-defense.
My gym has had many competitors and champions but, also has had countless students that don’t compete and only want the benefits that Boxing offers!
