Praise

"[Cavanaugh's] book is highly entertaining, describing as it does one of boxing's most glorious decades, the years between Johnson and Louis, the last era in which whites dominated the heavyweight division, largely (and maybe even entirely) because blacks were banned from it....Cavanaugh tells [the story] engagingly and authoritatively." - David Margolick 05/31/2007
