9780786440160: The Fearless Harry Greb: Biography of a Tragic Hero of Boxing
From the Publisher:

The legendary Harry Greb stepped into the ring over 300 times from 1913 to 1926, defeated opponents who outweighed him by more than 30 pounds, held the middleweight and light heavyweight titles and beat every Hall of Fame boxer he ever fought. Dubbed 'the Pittsburgh Windmill' because of his manic, freewheeling style in the ring, Greb also crossed racial lines, taking on all comers regardless of color. An injury in the ring led to Greb gradually going blind in one eye and should have ended his career, but he kept his condition secret and fought on. Tragically, the indomitable fighter would be dead by the age of 32, felled by complications during minor surgery. This biography of one of the toughest boxers of all time includes interviews, family recollections, modern doctors' analyses of Greb's eye injury and over 120 rare photographs, as well as a complete fight record and round-by-round descriptions of his most famous fights.
