In all probability, Ed Latimore is a unique sportsman.
Raised in the projects of Pittsburgh, he became an elite amateur boxer, mixing with heavyweights who fought Anthony Joshua for the world title. However, like many athletes, he would lose his way, personally and professionally.
Latimore regrouped, went back to school and into the military. Now he combines a professional boxing career, with a degree in physics while writing self-help books with titles like “Not Caring What Other People Think is a Superpower”.
It is a strange world, money-orientated, often murky, environment of small-hall boxing, while blogging and writing about the more philosophical aspects of the human condition.
So how does that dichotomy work?
How did he handle a crushing first defeat? Did he take his own advice?
After all, Latimore is the only fighter who has written a book on confidence.
