A Villanova and Temple University graduate, Christian Giudice currently teaches English in Charlotte, North Carolina, and writes for the boxing site Juicesport.com. He has been published in South Jersey sports magazines and international boxing digests. He is the author of Hands of Stone: The Life and Legend of Roberto Duran (Milo Books, 2009) and is from Haddonfield, New Jersey.
"Just as he did in his first book about Roberto Duran, Christian Giudice offers a balanced and critical look at a great boxer's life, in the appropriately named Beloved Warrior. His reporting discusses, at length, the contradiction between Alexis Arguello's triumphs in the ring and the emotional, psychological, and political turbulence beyond the ropes that eventually claimed his life. Those who revere the fighter and person that Arguello was will finish Beloved Warrior thoroughly entertained, as well as better informed. For my money, one can't ask more from a book than that."--Lee Groves, boxing historian, columnist for The Ring and RingTV.com, and writer/researcher/punch counter for CompuBox, Inc.--Lee Groves
