Thomas Hauser, writing for the boxing site SecondsOut.com, recommends four University of Illinois Press boxing titles for your holiday gift list, including Sweet William, Andrew O’Toole’s new biography of Billy Conn.

 ”The two Louis-Conn fights are the highlight of O’Toole’s work, but he also does a nice job of recounting the endless dysfunctional family struggles that plagued Conn throughout his life and the boxer’s sad decline into pugilistic dementia.”
