"This book tells the story of a bruising boxer from an Acadianfishing community in New Brunswick who is still remembered for his great f ight with Archie Moore. On that night in December 1958, Yvon Durelle came within a second of winning the world championship. But there is a dark side of boxing, and a darker side to Durelle's life. Rarely has a sports biographer been so frank about his subject as Ray Fraser is in this book. The result is a remarkable portrait of a complex man and a punishing sport." - fromrear cover.
