The Sweet Science, a collection of essays on boxing by A.J. Liebling

A bit of classic Liebling wit, from "Ahab and Nemesis," his treatise on Marciano-Moore:

Some of the reporters, describing the blow in the morning papers, called it a “sneak punch,” which is journalese for one the reporter didn’t see but technically means a lead thrown before the other man has warmed up or while he is musing about the gate receipts.
