TODAY! Jerry Izenberg / Earnie Shavers Las Vegas Book Signing

PhilBoxing.com


BARNES & NOBLE TO HOST LAS VEGAS BOOK SIGNING FOR JERRY IZENBERG AND HIS NEW BEST SELLER, "ONCE THERE WERE GIANTS: THE GOLDEN AGE OF HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING"

Today! Friday, April 21, at 5 P.M. Barnes & Noble in Henderson with Earnie Shavers


LAS VEGAS, NEV. (April 21, 2017) -- Barnes & Noble will be hosting a Las Vegas book signing for legendary sportswriter JERRY IZENBERG Today! Friday, April 21, for his new best-selling book, Once There Were Giants. The Golden Age of Heavyweight Boxing (Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.) It will take place at the Barnes & Noble in Henderson (567 Stephanie, Henderson, Nev., 89014) and begin at 5 p.m. PT.

Izenberg's book delivers both his eyewitness accounts and revelatory back stories of the greatest era of heavyweight boxing, beginning in 1962 with Sonny Liston's one-round destruction of Floyd Patterson to 1997 when Mike Tyson was disqualified for biting Evander Holyfield's ear during their world championship rematch. In between there are the title reigns and legendary battles featuring Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman and Larry Holmes, among others. These men were giants in a ring with a single purpose -- to fight other giants, testing themselves and each other to determine who was the best. Once There Were Giants is a celebration of the greatest era of heavyweight boxing -- an extraordinary time, the likes of which we shall never see again.

Joining Izenberg will be arguably the hardest-puncher in heavyweight history, a two-time world title challenger and a Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame inductee EARNIE SHAVERS. Shavers went the distance with Ali and scored vicious knockdown against Holmes. The book signing will include a reading by Izenberg and a discussion between Shavers and himself. All books for this event must be purchased from Barnes & Noble to qualify for signatures. Please be prepared to show your receipt.

Izenberg, one of only two columnists to have covered every Super Bowl, will be covering his 51st Kentucky Derby in May. Fifty-five of his past sixty-six years as a sportswriter and columnist have been spent at the Star-Ledger in Newark. He has been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Hall of Fame, the Sports Hall of Fame of New Jersey, and he is the only sportswriter to be inducted into the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame He won the Associated Press's Red Smith Award for distinguished contributions to sports journalism and the Boxing Writers Association of America's Nat Fleischer Award for excellence in boxing journalism.
