Summary
A self-confessed coward, boxer Johnny Nelson hoped his opponents wouldn't turn up, failing twice at his chance to take the world title. He relates his moving, funny, frank, and inspirational story?an amazing odyssey from chump to champ?in this autobiography that includes drugs, gangsters, and a terrifying plot to kidnap him. Johnny Nelson's story has a universal appeal that goes beyond fight fans as a straightforward, honest account of overcoming personal fears and terrible setbacks to become the best in the world
