The Fights: American Writers on Boxing
Hardcover from Library of America
American writers have been fascinated by the ring, both the primal
contest inside the ropes and the crazy carnival world outside them. From
neighborhood gyms and smoke-filled arenas to star-studded casinos and exotic
locales, they have chronicled unforgettable stories about determination
and dissipation, about great champions and punch-drunk has-beens, about
colorful entourages and outrageous promoters, and, inevitably along the
way, about race, class, and violence in America. Like baseball, boxing
has a vivid culture and language all its own, one that has proven irresistible
to career journalists and literary writers alike.
The Library of America presents a gritty and glittering anthology of
a century of the very best writing and reportage about the fights. Here
are Jack London on the immortal Jack Johnson; H. L. Mencken and Irvin S.
Cobb on Jack Dempsey vs. Georges Carpentier, dubbed "The Fight of the Century";
Richard Wright on Joe Louis's historic victory over Max Schmeling; A. J.
Liebling's brilliantly comic portrait of a manager who really identifies
with his fighter; Jimmy Cannon on the inimitable Archie Moore; James Baldwin
and Gay Talese on the haunted Floyd Patterson; George Plimpton on Muhammad
Ali and Malcolm X; Norman Mailer on the "Rumble in the Jungle"; Mark Kram
on the "Thrilla in Manila"; Pete Hamill on legendary trainer and manager
Cus D'Amato; Mark Kriegel on Oscar de la Hoya; and David Remnick and Joyce
Carol Oates on Mike Tyson. National Book Award-winning novelist Colum McCann
(Let the Great World Spin) weighs in with a foreword.

Davis vs. Murder, Inc.: The Rise and Fall of the Jewish Mafia and an Ill-Fated
by Ron Ross
Book Description: A tough kid with a heart of gold, Al "Bummy"
Davis grew up in the streets of Brownsville, New York on the fringes of
the Jewish mob during the 20's and 30's-thanks to his older brother, a
feared racketeer. But as much as he resisted the underworld of Murder,
Inc. by becoming a championship fighter and a Brownsville hero, he never
did escape the Jewish Mob's shadow. Though he repeatedly stood up to mob
kingpins, Bummy suffered a spectacular fall from grace as a result of a
smear campaign by the press.
Ron Ross' Bummy Davis vs. Murder, Inc. is not just about one Jewish
boxer, his meteoric rise to fame, and victimization by the press. Bummy's
life was intertwined with the Great Depression, the survival of the Brooklyn
Jewish immigrant population during Prohibition, and the inevitable offshoot
of Prohibition-Murder Inc., one of American history's most notorious band
of killers. Ron Ross portrays an important historical time period, an enigmatic
Jewish subculture, and the surprising juxtaposition of a generation of
Jews and their talent for boxing.
Bummy Davis vs. Murder, Inc. features a cast of colorful villains whom
you'll love to hate, a boxing legend who was the unwitting pawn of fate,
and the human drama of the boxing world. With his vivid, street-smart Damon
Runyonesque writing style, Ron Ross redeems a tragic hero who fought the
pull of one of the most brutal groups of killers to grace the twentieth

Muhammad Ali: The Birth of a Legend, Miami, 1961-1964
by Sugar Ray Robinson, Dave Anderson
Sugar Ray Robinson (19211989) was hailed as the finest boxer to ever
enter a ring. Muhammad Ali once called him "the king, my master, my idol"and
indeed, he was the idol of everyone who had anything to do with boxing.
But for African Americans, he was more than a great boxer. In an era when
blacks were supposed to be humble and grateful for favors received, he
was a man whose every move in and out of the ring showed what black pride
and power meant. Sugar Ray grew up during the Depression in the ghettos
of Detroit and New York, rose through the amateur boxing ranks, became
Golden Gloves champion at the featherweight at the age of eighteen, and
become world welterweight champion in 1946 and middleweight in 1951. Robinson
had it all, but later lost it all; and in this classic autobiography he
tells it all with remarkable candor. Here is Sugar Ray: the dazzlingly
handsome champion with a craving for fast cars and fast living; the kid
who was terrified of elevators; the young GI who, together with Joe Louis,
combated racial discrimination; the honest fighter who refused a million
dollars to throw a fight against Rocky Graziano; the boxer who dreamed
he would kill his opponent in the ring, and did so the following night.
This Da Capo edition is supplemented with a new foreword and afterword
by Dave Anderson about Sugar Ray's last years in Los Angeles and the legacy
he left behind, and with eight new pages of stunning photographs.
