Review "If you want a real taste of boxing, give yourself a treat and read Inside the Ropes!" Sugar Ray Leonard "One of the greatest referees ever has written a terrific book about what he knows best." Tony Danza "I really enjoyed this book. Arthur Mercante is one of the best referees of all time, and Inside the Ropes shows you why." Jake LaMotta, The Bronx Bull” --This text refers to the edition. From the Inside Flap Inside stories of some the greatest prizefights of all time, including Floyd Patterson-Ingemar Johansson II, Joe Frazier-George Foreman I, and the Fight of the Century: Muhammad Ali-Joe Frazier I. Referee and elder statesman of boxing Arthur Mercante gives behind-the-scenes glimpses into his world, and into the lives and careers of the greatest boxers of all time. From Jack Dempsey to Muhammad Ali, to George Foreman and Marvin Hagler: Mercante has known them all. He has officiated more championship fights than any other referee, and his blow-by-blow accounts are peppered with grit and telling details as he analyzes what went right for the winners-and what went so wrong for the losers. But Mercante shares private moments as well. Making a commercial with Rocky Graziano, giving Sugar Ray Leonard a serious pep-talk in the dressing room before a bout, discovering to his surprise that Mike Tyson is a fan of his, these are the stories behind the glamour and the grit. Some are even the stories of an era: When asked by Producer David Susskind to assist in casting the movie Requiem for a Heavyweight by choosing the up-and-coming boxer most likely to become the next Heavyweight Champion of the World, Mercante shows up at Susskind's office with a young Cassius Clay in tow-and the rest is history. This is the Sweet Science as only Arthur Mercante knows it-the thrilling human drama that is boxing at its best!
