Book review: Sting Like a Bee

A classic of boxing literature.

Former world light-heavyweight champion Jose Torres was a friend and sparring partner of Muhammad Ali.

Torres turned his expert eye on ‘the Greatest’ as Ali made his fighting comeback after having his titles stripped and his boxing licence taken away.

Torres’s professional analysis strips away the razzamatazz and hype of the Ali roadshow, revealing what he had lost in the years of his exile and the hurdles that he had to face as he built towards the ‘Fight of the Century’ against Joe Frazier.
