Publisher's Summary

There was only one man who fought both Rocky Marciano and Muhammad Ali. There was only one man who recorded 141 professional Knock-Outs. There was only one man who trained both a young Ali and heavyweight champion George Forman. There was only one Archie Moore. With a seven-decade boxing career, including 27 years as a prize fighter, Moore's vast career and exploits are finally chronicled in The Ageless Warrior. Author Mike Fitzgerald spent months with Moore before the boxer's death in an effort to capture the full life story of one of the 20th Century's most colorful and accomplished athletes. And what a story it was. Moore's opponent list reads like a "who's who" of boxing; he fought nine world champions and seven Hall-of-Famers.

What does a True Man Look Like?

He was a great boxer. He was a devoted Christian. Yes, he had a great ego but then again what top athlete doesn’t. Unlike today’s top boxers who seem to once they turn pro are ushered by their promoters into championship fights without having to serve much of an apprenticeship in the pro ranks as they did in the amateurs. This man though very unfairly treated became though largely self taught a boxer par excellence with a style like no other. This book chronicles his life and does so I believe in fine fashion.As stated before he had a much too long apprenticeship before he finally got his chance to fight for a championship .Perseverance ,Archie Moore had loads of it. Integrity ,he had that too. He also had a fighting heart. Some say champions are made and some say they are born either way Archie Moore was a champion in the ring and in life. This book is an entertaining listen for all boxing fans and young boxing fans who want to learn a little about how to live life. What does a true man look like? Well, even though he was far from perfect one would do well to remember two words Archie Moore. I would say that’s a pretty good role model.

Good biography of a legendary fighter

If one wants to learn more about the life and career of the boxer who hold the record for most knockouts in a career, pick up this book. It is a complete work of his life both personally and professionally.

The enduring and happy fighter

Very inspiring, there goes a man 😉. Doesn't only teach you about being a fighter, but in how to be a man, how to think, and how to get alongbin the world. A man who would rather change his clothes in a field rather than a fancy hotel, came from tough times but never forgot where he came from.

This book has made me wonder why we don't hear more of Archie Moore, he is an unsung hero.

A good autobiography

This is an exceptional story of one of boxing's greatest pugilistic slugger's, but poorly narrated.

great story of a champion of boxing and life

The story was very entertainingly written but a little slow in narration so I sped it up. I loved the book and will listen to it again before long. I learnt a lot from Archie Moore's great life.
