This BOOK spans eighty years and is dedicated to those who aspire to accomplish their dreams in life. The benchmark set by this world champion in and out of the ring is formidable. but, the real key to success for the champion of these pages is about what you give back. In the words of Tony Zale, "You receive far more from life by what you give, rather than by what you get." Thad zale and clay moyle have completed their collaboration on the life story of Tony Zale (Antoni Florian Zaleski) from gary, Indiana.

Bless all of you who take the time to read the message within these pages.
