Gordon MarinoThe prose of boxing writers who worked before the dominance of television was punchier than the more subdued and wry tones of today’s sports sophisticates. Schulberg’s brash style and sometimes comedic choice of adjectives are refreshingly revenant . A few of the columns that make up the middle rounds of this work will seem outdated to ardent boxing fans. Nevertheless, the essays that take a toehold in the ’40s and ’50s will prove essential reading for all serious students of the sweet science.
