    1. This collection has a ton of good material that will give you a sample of the various sources of high quality boxing writing available if you're interested. The time periods involved go all the way back to the early 1800s, not counting the surprisingly awesome passage by Homer from The Iliad. Probably the most heavily-featured period is from around the 1930s-1960s. Other than that Homer piece, I also especially enjoyed the passages by Daniel Mendoza, Heywood Broun, John Lardner, and W.C. Heinz. [...]


    2. An epic collection of stories relating to the sport of boxing. Although, the author may have done better if he had interwoven the stories together with more of a memorable narration.The most memorable part of the book to me is when Sugar Ray Robinson, about fifteen years before his retirement, is quoted to say that "the public don't know it, but I do. The fighter himself is the first to know. You find you have to think your punches. The punches that you used to throw without thinking', you now h [...]


    3. A fairly misleading title, given that the book includes a number of short-stories about boxing, bits from a screenplay, and so on.I was hoping for journalistic accounts of fights; while the book does contain several very good such accounts ("The Boxer and the Blonde" is a great piece; same for James Baldwin's), there are more out there that would have been interesting to include. Still, not a bad round-up of boxing writers to explore.


    4. You haven't read about boxing unless you've read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's story of a couple of pugilists. This book is filled with the most unexpected literary treats all on the topic of "Boxing."


    5. An amazing collection of tales, would recommend to everybody, boxing & non-boxing fan alike, truly describes the hardships around such a tough sport
