Anyone looking to pick up a copy of “Boxing in New Mexico: 1868-1940,” by Chris Cozzone and Jim Boggio, can do so at Friday night’s fights at the Wool Warehouse. Cozzone will have a table in the lobby in the hour before first bell. As a special for fight fans attending Friday’s card, the usually $45 price will be dropped to $36. Cozzone says he’s more interested in circulating the book than making the few bucks each copy yields. He also says that a minimum number of books must be sold before his publisher agrees to move forward with the second volume. Volume II, says Cozzone, will go from WW2 to the present era.

Two book signings are planned for the newly-released “The First Black Boxing Champions – Essays on Fighters of the 1800s to the 1920s,” on Saturday, April 2.

The first time & location will be 1 p.m., at the Albuquerque Public Library, Lomas & Tramway Branch, Eastridge St. (the library sits on the SW corner of Tramway and Lomas, but has an Eastridge address.)

The second time & location will correspond with Saturday night’s “Rising Stars Battle at the Bosque” fight card at the Santa Ana Star Casino in Bernalillo. Prior to first bell, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., a table will be set up near the entrance to the arena.

Along with a book signing, a lecture, historic film, photos and archives will be made available by editor Colleen Aycock and Chris Cozzone, who has a New Mexico-related essay in the book. Cozzone will also talk about his upcoming book, “The History of Boxing in New Mexico,” which will be printed by McFarland Press, publisher of “The First Black Boxing Champions” and Aycock’s last book, “Joe Gans: A Biography of the First African American World Boxing Champion.”
