“Punches & Prayers: A Fighter’s Journey from the Gulf Coast to the Big Apple”: a lively memoir. “Punches & Prayers” is the creation of published author Ricky Ray Taylor, president of BoxerDRILLZ Corporation who lives in New York City with his wife.

Taylor writes, “If I wanted to attend a pro boxing show in south Mississippi as a kid, this is what was being dangled before me—and it was far from being pleasant. If life were attempting to sell pro-boxing to me through my experience of watching two flat-nosed pugilists slam their fists into each other’s face then, life was a horrible salesperson.
"Perhaps however, my overall distaste for pro-boxing could have been God’s way of steering me in another direction—away from pro-boxing, away from ending up punch-drunk and away from the Mississippi coast. Unbeknownst to me, I had many more roads to travel in states which I had yet to even step foot in.
"Who knew?
"Jesus however, was still a few years away from taking the reins from my tightly gripped fists.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Ricky Ray Taylor’s new book is an unforgettable hero’s journey across a vibrant nation and a colorful life.
