Coach Ian – Week In Review: 09/26/2021
Book I’m Reading
Damage: The Untold Story of Brain Trauma in Boxing by Tris Dixon
Thirty Dollars and a Cut Eye by J Russell Peltz
I picked up “Thirty Dollars and a Cut Eye”, written by boxing promoter J Russell Peltz, at the recommendation of boxing promoter Michelle “Raging Babe” Rosado. J Russell Peltz has been involved in boxing for over 50 years. The reviews show that he discusses many historic fights throughout the book, while also detailing what goes on behind-the-scenes, including the business side of the sport. I’m looking forward to starting this one.
