Small Town boxer

the story of a nationally-ranked boxer turned bodyguard

Hello, my name is Michael Suski and I lead a life of unimaginable accomplishments. I was a national champion boxer while fighting in only my second boxing tournament and placed very highly in my first big tournament. I started boxing in jr. high and by high school I was on the U.S. Boxing Team. I grew up wrestling and was a much better wrestler than boxer but boxing made me better prepared to back up my big mouth, so I put all my eggs in the boxing basket. I knew boxing offered me more opportunities and more glory so I mostly concentrated on that sport.

In high school, I was fighting on TV and traveling the world. I was also misbehaving very badly. I would street fight at the drop of a dime and knew I was the baddest man in the room, resulting in countless street and bar fights. I also had a taste for the ladies and was in a contest with all my other big time jock buddies in high school where we would have sex in the most daring and craziest places. This started my life off in a crazy direction and sexual appetites that lasted well into my future. I was the craziest "public sex exploits" champion, having three of the top five finishes, number one being in the tower of The Donald's mansion tower in Palm Beach.

I lived on the edge for a really long time and eventually fell off; I fell into the ashes of despair and had a life of failure at the bottom of a bottle. Boxing took away my intellect and my ability to talk comprehensibly at times. I eventually rose from the ashes of defeat and brain damage, making a huge life comeback. I had everything, lost everything, and then worked my ass off getting my life back to all its glory!

  • MIke Suski, the author, was from my home town, Flushing, Mich. and I could not wait to read his book. He did not let me down and he left me wanting more. My favorite part is on page 318. It was a total surprise and brought the tears. I rated this book 5 stars because it took some courage and bad memories to write it. I hope he writes another book because I'm a fan of his now and I can't wait.

  • Suski's memoir is direct and blunt, poignant and hilarious all at the same time. The arc of Suski's life is fit for a Hollywood movie, complete with a boatload of memorable characters and an array of incidents that wouldn't seem so crazy if they weren't real! That includes rising from a high school kid getting his butt kicked to becoming a national boxing champion, then pro who served as a bodyguard for Trump. Suski serves it straight, all the successes and moments of failure and doubt, which makes for a compelling read from start to finish. This is not a book about boxing, it is about living life on your own terms, backing it up when you run off your mouth, and never going half way on anything. I LOVED IT!
