Summary
"The son of poor Italian immigrants, with short arms and stubby legs, Rocky Marciano accomplished a feat that eluded heavyweight champions like Louis, Dempsey, Ali, and Tyson: He never lost a professional fight. A classic American tale of immigrant dreams, exceptional talent wedded to exceptional ambitions, compromises in the service of a greater good, astounding success, disillusionment, and a quest to discover what it all meant."--Goodreads.com
