"I have been reading boxing books for over twenty years and Adeyinka Makinde has written one of the best I have ever read. Dick Tiger was one of the greatest Middleweights of the modern era and this book is a fitting tribute to him.

Adeyinka Makinde has done a great job of packing the book full of well researched information on Tiger and the times he fought in.

A must read for any true Boxing fan."
