HOW pleased I am being a boxing fan that the virtues of The Ultimate Boxing Quiz Book have been discovered by the followers of the sport.

Author Ralph Oates has for a number of years turned out good books on the fight game.

This latest book of his is the best yet really finding questions from every area of the sport. In my youth I had a number of bouts in the unpaid ranks and when I packed it in I followed the game with the enthusiasm of a student at university and became an expert on boxing.

Yet author Oates has come up with some questions even I can't answer. The book is entertaining and is educational. Well done Ralph Oates on a super, super book. On the boxing front Dagenham's Kevin Mitchell is good, but should not be rushed towards a world title fight yet. Why does he not challenge British lightweight champion John Murray, that would be a good bout.
