Never once did the men shake hands, and their fight so galvanized the nation that after Johnson lost the title, more than twenty years would pass before another black man would be permitted to contend for boxing's top prize. "America On The Ropes" tells the story of this famous prizefight and serves as a disturbing reflection of a nation still struggling with the failure of reconstruction and unwilling to come to terms with its promise of freedom and justice for all.About the Author:
Wayne A. Rozen has been involved with boxing since his teenage years. A syndicated columnist for a national sports wire, guest analyst for ESPN television, New York State registered judge, promoter, and manager, Mr. Rozen has interviewed numerous champions and boxing celebrities for more than 25 years. This book is the result of his enduring interest in Jack Johnson's quest for equality in a prejudiced America and is the classic underdog story of sport.
