"Muhammad Ali's iconic life has been the subject of countless books, films and documentaries, but until now one part of his boxing life has never been fully examined: The punches he dished out and the punches he took. For the first time ever, "Muhammad Ali: By the Numbers" will reveal the hits and misses of Ali's immortal career, from his TV debut against Alonzo Johnson, the earth-shaking upset of Sonny Liston, the wondrous Cleveland Williams fight, the classic trilogies with Joe Frazier and Ken Norton, his long march back to regaining the title that climaxed with the "Rumble in the Jungle" against George Foreman and his stirring rematch victory over Leon Spinks to win his third heavyweight title. The stats will also reveal the surprising success his opponents enjoyed and will further illustrate why Ali's health started to decline in his early 30s. But "Muhammad Ali: By the Numbers" is much more than a book of statistics. Each fight is described in vivid detail by award-winning boxing writer Lee Groves while CompuBox president Bob Canobbio provides thought-provoking "next level" numerical insights. For these easons, 'Muhammad Ali: By the Numbers" is a truly one-of-a-kind book.
