If it happened in Canadian boxing, Dave Brown has a story to tell about it. From the ring heroics of Vancouver's world champion, Jimmy McLarnin, in the 1930s to the private disgrace of title holder Davey Hilton in 2000, Canada's boxing scene has always been dynamic and exhilarating. For 60 years Dave Brown has lived and breathed this intriguing sport as a respected boxer, a successful manager and, most recently, a top-flight international judge with the World Boxing Council, the pre-eminent organization of professional boxing.
Boxing has taken Dave Brown to some interesting venues. He has boxed in the fabled Montreal Forum and aboard World War II warships; he has tutored a clutch of hard-luck Vancouver youths to Olympic and British Empire Games glory; he has worked and hobnobbed with boxing greats George Chuvalo and Rocky Marciano, as well as the many celebrities that frequented matches. He has seen the graft and corruption, heroics and honesty. His remarkable stories include refereeing a match between Chuvalo and Muhammad Ali, one of the toughest matches "the greatest athlete of the 20th century" ever endured.
The stories of Dave Brown are brought to life skillfully by Tom Henry, an award-winning author, and enhanced with electrifying black-and-white photos of some of the great moments and personalities in Canadian and world boxing history. Direct as a fist in the face, "Inside Fighter" is one man's entertaining and informative take on the Canadian fight scene.
