Default Re: best boxing books and why

I've read Pollack's In the Ring with Jeffries and Fitzsimmons. Got the John L book arriving tomorrow. I imagine I will get around to Hart and Burns, but maybe after the Jack Johnson book, which is hopefully released soon...

Oh, and they ****ing fantastic. I think people tend to think of them as dispassionate or not developing the personality of the pugilists. I would contend quite the opposite. Those contemporary reports reveal so much more than a decades later regurgitation of 10th hand stories and apocryphal threads...
