Editorial Reviews:

This guide to the finer points of boxing provides the wisdom needed to make the transition from enthusiastic beginner to proficient pugilist. The ABCs of ring generalship, offensive and defensive ring movements, feints, and draws and fakes are examined and explained along with clinching techniques, head-hunting, body work, and counter-punching chains. Strategies for boxing against tall and short opponents as well as for a variety of fighting styles such as charger, speed-demon, stick-and-move, and slugger and brawler are discussed in detail. Specific drills focus on sophisticated ring stratagems such as throwing complex combinations, cutting off the ring, fighting off the ropes, generating power, and cornering an opponent are included.

Summary: For the price, a fine manual...
Comment: Hatmaker and Werner's book Boxing Mastery is a fine manual on a few of the finer points of advanced boxing and you can't beat it for the money. Nice job tying in trad boxing techniques with modern "popular" techniques. I purchased this along with Werner's other collaboration with with Lachica and the pair make a great set. As one reads through these techniques you realize why so many mma fighters and run of the mill Taekwondo Toms constantly bad mouth the most widespread fighting art... because it can be effective against any attack. Not simple as it is often referred to (check out the total ineptitude of most ufc and mma fighters at striking in their opening rounds before they shoot in for the high school wrestling take down... they think its simple and obviously don't have a clue) and not just duking it out like some bar basement palooka either... but it is readily accessible and systematic in its effectiveness... as an aikido practitioner I will say that the two types of martial artists I think would be the most trouble to handle are the boxer and muay thai fighter, both technique systems so close in concept as to be called brothers. Buy this book... its great and you will learn real time tested concepts of fighting which should carry over into any other style. And, you can get in the ring and try them out full bore too...

Summary: A disappointment
Comment: Wow! Finally something from Hatmaker that I DON'T like! Savage Strikes is great, No Holds fighting is awesome. I've seen one of his videos and thought it was pretty good. However, this book is lacking. Lots of pictures, but many of the topics need more explaining. There are some drills that are unique, but if you want a good book on boxing, check out Ultimate Boxer. Its got just about everything covered (of course, its lacking in pictures, so maybe between both books you'll be in good shape).

Summary: Dont hold your breath
Comment: I bought this book expecting it to have a lot of new information. If you have spent any time in a boxing gym, you will already know 75% of the book. A few new items and drills. Way too many pictures in my opinion. Need more instruction and a few relevant pictures.

Summary: awesome
Comment: I recommend anything from mark hatmaker, the guy really knows his stuff, and knows how to present it. This is imho the best single volume guide on boxing. Stance, footwork, punches, defense, history, tips, training tips, all covered. His penchant for true boxing of the golden age gives this book that extra charm, in addition to its top notch instruction and information. If youre a fan of boxing, get this , if youre into mma, buy all his books.
