Description


"The way I looked at it was Paul had to be pretty damn awesome to do the stuff he did in the ring and remain undefeated for so long with all of his issues. The man had all kinds of things going on outside the ring that should have stood in his way, but he still kept winning. God had to be watching out for him." -Roy Jones Jr.


"Paul was one of the best. And without the drugs and alcohol, he would have been unstoppable." -Tom Yankello


Pittsburgh's Paul Spadafora defeated Israel Cardona to capture the International Boxing Federation (IBF) lightweight belt and the heart of a city that had not boasted a world champion prizefighter in over a half-century. Outside the ring, Paul's irrepressible dependency on drugs and alcohol marred his legacy and bore tragic consequences. Paul's narrative was one of brilliance, crippled by madness, a dichotomy of in-ring savant and out-of-ring calamity. Fighting Till the End is a candid examination of a flawed champion determined to conquer his demons and come out on top in the final round of his life.
