UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has a date with Johny Hendricks looming, but for now, his focus will be in a few decidedly different places.
St-Pierre’s autobiography, “The Way of the Fight,” is now available in his native Canada and is scheduled for an April 23 release in the U.S.
In St-Pierre’s autobiography, the UFC champ promises to share “the lessons he learned on his way to the top,” including “how he overcame bullying and injury to become an internationally celebrated athlete and champion.” St-Pierre began writing the book suring his extended time off to recover from ACL surgery.
Canadian outlets are already carrying the title. It can be pre-ordered ahead of its U.S. release at numerous online retailers, including Amazon.com, which is offering the book for $18.99.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which is based on a Marvel Comic and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, hits theaters in April 2014. Production began Monday, though it’s not expected to keep St-Pierre on the sidelines for an extended time.
St-Pierre’s character in “Captain America,” Batroc The Leaper, first appeared in comic books in 1966. The mercenary is a master of savate, a French form of kickboxing.
St-Pierre (24-2 MMA, 18-2 UFC) is next scheduled to fight top contender Hendricks (15-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC), who earned his shot with a recent decision win over onetime title challenger Carlos Condit. However, a date hasn’t been set for their title fight.
