This compilation of boxing-related commentary, criticism, reportage, and analysis represents the decade's best from award-winning sports journalist George Kimball. With selections culled from a wide array of publications including Boxing Digest, the Irish Times, ESPN.com, and TheSweetScience.com, this is a hard-hitting look at the current state of the sport. Kimball pulls no punches as he dissects the triumphs, defeats, and mistakes of the major figures in boxing from yesterday and today—including Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Manny Pacquiao, Oscar de la Hoya, and dozens more—bringing all the controversies and personalities vividly to life.

About the Author:

George Kimball spent 25 years as a sports columnist for the Boston Herald and received the Nat Fleischer Award for Excellence in Boxing Journalism in 1986. He has covered nearly 400 world-title fights in a four-decade sports writing career and is the author of the acclaimed Four Kings: Leonard, Hagler, Hearns, Duran and the Last Great Era of Boxing. He lives in New York City.

Review:

"Kimball's accounts of the fights are riveting blow-by-blows, the "big event" context is palpably rendered, and each of the fighters re-emerges from the mists of memory as colorful and compelling as ever. Boxing fans . . . will savor Kimball's work."  —Booklist



"George Kimball is one of America's best-loved sportswriters."  —Jeremy Schaap, author, Cinderella Man



"You need to learn to duck before you get into the ring with George Kimball. He comes out of his corner two-fisted and ready to fight."  —J. P. Donleavy, author, The Ginger Man



"Boxing's last Golden Age gets the book it deserves. Kimball's breezy, detailed-packed book . . . provides vivid, knowledgeable accounts of the action. He also draws clear portraits of four fighters whose styles in and out of the ring were so markedly different and shows how interwoven their lives became."  —Richard O'Brien, Sports Illustrated, on Four Kings
