Death In The Ring - Boxing Book by George Thomas Clark
Death In The Ring
By George Thomas Clark
The sport of boxing has long captured the hearts and souls of millions. Its raw fury has been romanticized, its contenders glorified. But always in the background, there remains the dark reality of life after boxing: bodies battered and minds damaged beyond repair. The greatest enemy of the boxer is not his opponent, but the sport itself. Death in the Ring celebrates the bravery inherent in the sport of boxing. It’s a celebration of conquering fear and taking the greatest risk of all – self-sacrifice – for the glory of the sport.

A Jewel of a Book
By S. Wood
With "Death in the Ring", the stale air of the past becomes invigorating and refreshing. Clark has a unique slant when writing about his subjects--he becomes them! The legendary John L. Sullivan, the colorful Jack Johnson, the artistic Mickey "The Toy Bulldog", Walker, the inscrutable Sonny Liston, and many more boxing greats, all are alive again--and they speak to us--sharing their intimate feelings and secret thoughts through Clark's creative pen. It's a dangerous literary game of "faction" that Clark plays, but he plays it well and we buy into Clark's portrayals, speculations, and flights of fancy because, Clark is a boxing historian and grounds his subjects in fact. These stories are wonderful!
