Floyd Patterson: A Boxer and a Gentleman
Floyd Patterson: A Boxer and a Gentleman is a biography written by Alan H. Levy. It was released in paperback on September 22, 2008 by McFarland Publishing.
"This first complete biography of the former heavyweight champion covers Patterson's meteoric rise as a boxer while giving equal attention to his life away from sport, including his work as a civil rights activist in the 1960s. Joining Ali and George Frazier as boxers who used their celebrity to bring attention to social issues, he became an icon of the movement."
