About the Book

At age 23, Tony Canzoneri already had three division titles under his belt and was widely considered one of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the world. Holding victories over Johnny Dundee, Charles “Bud” Taylor, Benny Bass, Jack “Kid” Berg, Kid Chocolate, Billy Petrolle, Lou Ambers, and Jimmy McLarnin, Tony earned induction into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990, and later pursued a successful career in entertainment. This work chronicles Canzoneri’s life, starting from his birth and early rounds in the ring, with chapters detailing his wins, losses, championships and life as a father.
