"Carefully documents the ruin waiting for almost all those ill-advised enough to become professional boxers. He confirms all the legends, of crime, of swindling, of the miserable economic rewards allotted to the vast majority of fighters. . . the traditional racism of the American ring. . . . No one, reading Sammons, can doubt that it is evil." -- Times Literary SupplementSammons, Jeffrey T. is the author of 'Beyond the Ring The Role of Boxing in American Society', published 1990 under ISBN 9780252061455 and ISBN 0252061454.
