Description
"British sportswriter [Kevin] Mitchell offers an anecdotal survey of boxing in the 1950s, often considered the sport's golden age…. It’s a fascinating story, full of great fighters (Robinson, Marciano, LaMotta) and the noirish characters who have always flourished on the edges of the sport, none more so than Mike Jacobs, who controlled boxing at the Garden through the 1940s and into the early 50s. But when Jacobs' health caused him to take a diminished role, the Mob stepped in, particularly the charming but lethal Frankie Carbo."—Booklist
