In 1892, 'Gentleman' James J. Corbett defeated John L. Sullivan to become the heavyweight champion of the world. Using his own 'scientific boxing' techniques, Corbett delivered a blistering lesson to the previously unbeatable Sullivan, ending the fight with a knockout in the 21st round. With Corbett's win, a new era in boxing began. Corbett is considered by many to be the 'father of modern boxing', and for being the first person to apply scientific principles to the art of pugilism. In 'Scientific Boxing', the creator of such boxing innovations as the 'left hook' distills his scientific methodology into an accessible manual of boxing techniques. This classic book contains sections on fundamental boxing techniques, fouling techniques, and the various boxing rules of his time. 6 x 9. 126 pages.
