....is that of boxing and Liebling's articles on boxiana, collected from their New Yorker appearance, cover June, 1951, to September, 1955, and present a personal and polished accounting of the square ring of those years. The first section deals with the Louis-Savold fight, Cerdan-Marciano, -Ray Robinson-Turpin, Robinson-Maxim, Marciano-Walcott and the return match, Ezzard Charles-Marciano and the return; then come pieces on other boys, Araujo, Jackson, Saddler, and assorted club fights and fighters including a trip to Ireland and back for the Ma Moore meeting. For this laying on of hands there are many sidelights -- the managers, trainers, the other members of the "fancy"; there are the people in the crowds, the gallery that follows the events at the training quarters, the feeling of the fans in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and the excitement of the big night. And there is much of boxing history, lore and legend worked in so that the whole is a many-patterned picture of the ring and its performers. Excellent reading and not only for the buffs.
