The true inside story of how the love between world middleweight champion Joey Giardello, once anointed the "Bad Boy of Boxing," and son Carman, born with Down syndrome, helped change the world. A real-life Rocky, Giardello knew and socialized with celebrities from the worlds of entertainment, politics, sports and business. But there was far more to the man and his legacy than boxing, including his work with special needs children and the Special Olympics. Author and family friend, Charles Redner thanks Joey and the entire family, particularly Joey's wife Rosalie, without whom this story never could have been fully told. Realia includes family and professional pictures.
