Some brief overview of this book

Before you can be a champion,

you have to be a contender.

Alfred Brooks is scared. Hes a highschool dropout and his grocery store job is leading nowhere. His best friend is sinking further and further into drug addiction. Some street kids are after him for something he didnt even do. So Alfred begins going to Donatellis Gym, a boxing club in Harlem that has trained champions. There he learns its the effort, not the win, that makes the man — that last desperate struggle to get back on your feet when you thought you were down for the count.

After a successful start in a boxing career, a Harlem high school dropout decides that competing in the ring isnt enough of life and resolves to aim for different goals.
