Default Re: Boxing Writers on the Take in the Golden Era

To get a real good picture of that, see THE HARDER THEY FALL, starring Humphrey Bogart, where a crooked promoter bribes a top sports writer (Bogart) beset by bills to hype an inept Argentine giant's fixed fights until he gets a shot at the heavyweight title, and the promoter cashes in betting against his own fighter.
