In the second round of a defense of his IBF super featherweight world championship, Tony The Tiger Lopez felt the elbow of challenger John Molina slam into his eye. The impact of the accidental shot shattered his orbital bone and jammed Lopez's eyeball back into its socket. Swelling immediately sealed the eye, a problem made worse when, in the next round, Molina opened a cut over Lopez's other eye. The notoriously gritty champ fought seven more rounds that night in Sacramento before losing his title by TKO -- a story typical of those you'll read in A Puncher's Chance: Amazing Tales from The Ringside Boxing Show. This is the first of a series of books chronicling the strange-but-true lives of some of the greatest boxers and boxing personalities of all time -- yarns spun in their own words during live interviews on The Ringside Boxing Show, a weekly radio program that originates from Monterey, California and streams worldwide. Prepare to be astonished by more than a dozen of the most remarkable and improbable stories ever told about the brutal and astonishing sport known as The Sweet Science.
