John Sparks about this book: "The Last Fight" is the third series in the life and Times of Ken Puckett. Ken was born in a small town in Kentucky, developing a love for sports as he competed in football and basketball for his school teams. But what he learned was that things didn't always go the way he had hoped in his journey to become a sports star in High School. Then one day he saw an Olympic boxer competing on television and decided he would like to represent his country in that sport. The boxer happened to be enlisted in the United States Navy, therefore Ken made his plans to join the Navy, and start his journey to his goal. That journey was successful. He was on top of the world as everything was starting to fit into place. But what he failed to realize was that the best laid plans sometimes are altered. That life is not always about winning. That determination and hard work might get you to the top, but it won't necessarily keep you there. Join Ken in his adventure to reach his goal of becoming a champion and his struggles along the way. This book's reading level is from sixth grade to young adult. It is based on true events and hopefully will make the reader realize that out of all the stars in sports that make it, there are thousands more who don't due to circumstances, sometimes beyond their control.
