Ten and Out
Ten and Out! is a book of boxing history written by Alexander Johnston and published in 1947. Most of its length focusses on the history of the heavyweight division, covering the rise of James Figg, England's first bare-knuckle champion, to the prime of Joe Louis, the reigning heavyweight champion at the time of the book's publication. The history of the sport's other major weight divisions, the light heavyweights, the middleweights, the welterweights, the lightweights, and the featherweights, are also covered.
