Review quote

"Carefully documents the ruin waiting for almost all those ill-advised enough to become professional boxers. He confirms all the legends, of crime, of swindling, of the miserable economic rewards allotted to the vast majority of fighters... the traditional racism of the American ring... No one, reading Sammons, can doubt that it is evil." -- Times Literary Supplementshow more
