Publisher Comments:

Spanning the period between 1967 and 2005, this compilation includes 84 of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ira Berkows columns on boxing. Readers will meet some of the greatest names in the sports history in the pages of this book, including Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Joe Louis, and Mike Tyson. Among the unforgettable stories gathered in this collection are the heated rivalry between Ali and “Smokin Joe” Frazier, Tysons infamous “Bite Fight” in 1997, and the will-he-or-wont-he retirement saga of Sugar Ray Leonard. Written in Berkows gripping prose, the columns included in Counterpunch chronicle the most important moments in boxing over the last four decades.
