About this Item

This large & heavy book may incur extra shipping charges. A NOTE TO OUR OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS: While we welcome offshore orders, heavy books present a special problem. We ship our books in boxes, and all international boxes of more than 4 lbs. must now travel by air, "Priority Mail." This book is thus likely to cost something on the order of $54 to ship overseas. While we rebate overage above actual shipping costs, overseas buyers should not order this book or other heavy books unless they're willing to approve and pay the requisite "Priority" shipping. Sports, Las Vegas. This book reduced from $55. Bookseller Inventory # 003392

About this title

Synopsis:

Las Vegas is a city where fortunes are won and lost on the roll of the dice, a 24-hour-a-day, neon-lit wonderland. Stars roam the Strip and decadence is always available at a price, but never are the stakes higher in Las Vegas than inside the ring. It's here where lives are shattered, and sometimes lost, in search of the glory and riches that come in the squared circle. This is Fight Town, a place where fame is only one big punch away and the high-rolling gamblers with their fat bankrolls look on to the next big win. Dahlberg tells the stories behind the fights. It was in Las Vegas where Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack were the stars in the showrooms, but fighters like Sonny Liston and a brash Cassius Clay were stars of the ring. The faces and places are all there, spread out over more than 200 pages. This is truly a tribute to both the city and the sport it loves. This is Fight Town.

About the Author:

He is the winner of the 1999 Nat Fleischer award given by the Boxing Writers of America for excellence in boxing journalism, and winner of multiple other Associated Press Sports Editors and BWAA writing awards.
