Ringside is a bountiful collection of the most memorable boxing
stories by legendary fight-game writer Budd Schulberg. Schulberg
takes us all the way back to an epic bare-knuckle contest in
England 200 years ago; draws a revealing portrait of 'Uncle' Mike
Jacobs, the promotional impresario of boxing in its golden age;
expertly places Joe Louis and Muhammad Ali in the social context of
their times; brings followers up to date on the careers of the
great names of recent decades - Tyson, Holyfield, de la Hoya,
Hopkins, 'Chico' Corrales; and much more. Throughout this book,
Schulberg provides the perfect blend of great writing on great
fighters, laced with a realistic sense of boxing's wrongs as well
as its rights. With prose that sparkles with authority and insight,
Ringside is a main event in the world of sports literature.
