Making Champion Men is a 2012 non-fiction book, co-written by Billy Graham and Phil Gifford. It gives parents and people organising youth groups, a practical, detailed blueprint to turn around the lives of boys struggling with life.

Based on lessons learned the hard way, it reveals the secrets behind one of the most remarkable success stories in New Zealand youth work, the Naenae Boxing Academy. Billy Graham, a national boxing champion and then a globally recognised motivational speaker, came home to Naenae, New Zealand, five years ago to set up the academy. Awards have flowed, local police say youth crime is down 30% and a detailed Massey University study confirmed the academy s amazing ability to help troubled boys become good young men.

Graham's book shows us, with passion and humour, how to work the same miracles in your home or community.
