My friend Bobby Mayne

I would like to sincerely thank my friend Bobby Mayne for sending me his book ” The Art of Boxing”.

With no doubt one of the most in-depth, detailed and easy to understand how to books on boxing I’ve read.

Just what the boxing instructor needs to set up a curriculum for classes, references on techniques and setting up a conditioning plan.

Great job Bobby!

Jim Amato – Senior Boxing Writer

Let me say that this is the best boxing training manual I have ever read . I have read many in the past including Nat Fleischer’s fine series. In my humble opinion, this tops them all. The author Bobby Mayne is a former boxer and now a trainer . This book must have taken hours and hours to put together. The end result is over 200 pages of instructions and photos. A truly priceless volume of knowledge .

The author leaves no stones unturned as he touches on every aspect of the Sweet Science. I was amazed at how well author Mayne broke down every move, every punch and counter punch . Offensive strategy, defensive strategy … it’s all in this fine book. This is a must have for every fan of the art of boxing. A one of a kind masterpiece .

“Bobby’s boxing manual is an excellent guide for anyone wanting to learn the sweet science of the ring, either to learn the basics for getting fit or to master the advanced techniques and become a great boxer, I thoroughly enjoyed it.”

Jeff Mayweather

“The chapter on ringcraft was pretty interesting and accurate, your instructions were precise and to the point and in the simplest terms so it makes it easy to get your message and instructions across to the readers.”

Michael Olajide Jr.

“I love what Mayne has done in this book. Whenever I read a “how to” boxing manual, I usually roll my eyes and confirm to myself that people don’t understand the DETAIL that goes into executing a punch. Mayne has done an amazing-detailed job of explaining how to execute the punch down to the wrist rotation. The best in the biz can read this book and reconfirm what they may know! This book is a necessity!”

Yuri Foreman

“Must say very clear and easy to read. Wish I had something like that when I was just starting boxing.”

Jackie Kallen

“This book is great for the beginning boxer. All of the basic fundamentals are here along with very explicit descriptions and explanations. This is a very helpful tool for all young athletes hoping to get into the sport of boxing.”

Pierre Karam

The book covers all aspects and avenues of boxing from the basic stance, techniques, guard, defence, offence and everything to do with boxing. Great book all of blood, sweat and tears have been put into this book.

Freddie Roach

I like the title of this training manual because it is an accurate description of the sport of boxing. This comprehensive training manual is a valuable teaching aid for boxers from novices to top level professionals because it covers different aspects of the training from the important fundamentals of the sport, how to apply these skills correctly in sparring and competition, and to implement a training program to include fitness and conditioning which is vital for a boxer preparing for a bout. This manual will also prove to be a valuable reference tool for coaching boxers

After training and being cornered by Bobby Mayne, I am so proud to say what a wonderful journal of text ‘The Art of Boxing: Your Guide to the Sweet Science’ is, never before have I seen such an in depth breakdown of every aspect and technique of boxing that can be easily read and understood from beginner, enthusiast, trainer to the most advanced professional boxer.

I will carry the manual with me to be used during my training and preparation. The manual is an endless amount of information covering every possible part of boxing having the answer for every frequently asked question.

I highly recommend this be read and kept close at hand for regular reference
