OK so, maybe this thread will be a wash, but it could be fun.
'Any of you guys like reading fiction books about boxers or that have to
do with boxing or that were written by boxers?
Here are some of my favorites, and if you guys or chicas have any
you'd like to suggest or even ones you thought sucked, bring it.
Here are the ones I've liked:
Waterfront Fists -- Robert E. Howard
On Boxing -- Joyce Carol Oates
Fifty Grand -- (Story) Ernest Hemingway
Pound For Pound/Million Dollar Baby/On The Ropes -- F.X. Toole
The Professional -- W.C. Heinz
Most ppl on psd won't read a long post, let alone a book.
Ive read some boxing books, not as many as I tell myself I will. There's a lot of great boxing books out there, especially from the times when boxing was king of American sports and some of the best writers and journalist wrote about it frequently.
The Art of The 6 Inch Hook by Sugar Ray Robinson. He could ko you with his left hook only 6 inches from his opponents jaw. Greatest of all time!
