We caught up once again with Dr. Gerard Gibbons, the grandson of world famous boxer Tommy Gibbons. This, as the centennial celebration of the 1923 Dempsey-Gibbons fight in Shelby, Montana is just about to get underway.

Dr. Gibbons just published his new book, "Shelby 1923: The Dempsey-Gibbons Fight For Glory and a Little Montana Town's Impossible Dream"

He tells us the book is now being printed.

It is a stunning 4-color, 206-page coffee-table style book that celebrates one of the most epic world heavyweight championship fights in history. It is an incredible story of world and American history importance. It is produced as a visual book designed for today's audience: stylized graphics, rich illustrations, and  fabulous photographs along with a fantastic and entertaining story.

Dr. Gibbons will be doing book signings and presentations on the 3rd and 4th of July in Shelby as the centennial celebrations are underway.

He is currently planning to do book signings at these locations in Shelby:

July 3 -  9:00 - 11:00 - Prairie Peddler
July 4 -  8:00 - 10:00 - Prairie Peddler
- 10:30 - 12:45 - Fire Station Picnic
