About the Book

An entertaining and informative account of some of the greatest rivalries in world sport.



'I wanted to punch him in the face. But I was so disgusted with him I couldn't do it. He revolts me.' - Alain Prost.

Sport by its very nature breeds competition, and competition breeds rivalries that become the stuff of legend. Phil Gifford explores key battles between New Zealand sportspeople and their international competitors, as well as great rivalries on an international stage.

Classic encounters include those between John McEnroe and Björn Borg, Sebastian Coe and Steve Ovett, the Wallabies and the All Blacks, Don Revie and Brian Clough, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, and many more.

told with Gifford's trademark humour and encyclopaedic knowledge of all things sporting, this is a behind-the-scenes look at sport's greatest battles.
