    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    wanna reccomend a good boxing book

    I making my christmas wish list.
    I already have like eight books on grappling so I want to get some good striking books. Anderson Silva's book is already on the list, but that's it. I'm interested in, and training to fight in both Muay Thai and MMA, but right now I think my handspeed could use some serious work.
    My boxing skills are pretty good so I'm not really looking for something basic.
    What have you guys read that you liked?

    If you are having issues with your hand speed then your boxing skills are not 'pretty good'. 'Handspeed' is usually a product of good technique like not telegraphing, snapping the punches and not making inefficient movements. Your best bet is just to train more, if you have issues with the jab throw 200 technically correct ones a day for 6 months.

    I'd reccomend you a book i like on MT strategy but it's too advanced for you at this stage.

    Can't recommend Championship Streetfighting: Boxing As A Martial Art strongly enough.

    I agree, though some of his more dirty tricks need to be left out as he states I thought it was a damn good book on boxing overall.

    From good old me, from search....

    An Amateur Boxing Manual - No BS Martial Arts = An Amateur Boxing Manual

    which is pretty long and pretty good and then there's this:

It features lots of pictures and links to vids, mostly of Beth Westover, a Boise Idaho woman who recently has gone pro, after some boxing and MT fights.

    and it can be compared to http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=13610, An Amateur Boxing Manual.

    .
    .and just because I can't resist:
    which also refers to manual, but I repeat myself

    "In This Corner" by Peter Heller. An anthology of Champs and fighters from Gunboat Smith onwards. Read it, you owe it to yourself, it's Christmas...

    Otherwise, use the Search Function and scout out "Championship Fighting" by Jack Dempsey. Some people swear by it.

    Cheers.
