9780786493876: The Arc of Boxing: The Rise and Decline of the Sweet Science

Are today's boxers better than their predecessors, or is modern boxing a shadow of its former self? Boxing historians discuss the socioeconomic and demographic changes that have affected the quality, prominence and popularity of the sport over the past century. Among the interviewees are world-renowned scholars, some of the sport's premier trainers, and former amateur and professional world champions. Chapters cover such topics as the ongoing deterioration of boxers' skills, their endurance, the decline in the number of fights and the psychological readiness of championship-caliber boxers. The strengths and weaknesses of today's superstars are analyzed and compared to those of such past greats as Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson, Jack Dempsey and Jake LaMotta.

Review:

"The most definitive analyses...I have ever read...belongs on every fan s bookshelf...an important work that reverberates with insight and wisdom...a must-read." --thesweetscience.com

"Compelling...entertaining treasure trove of boxing insider knowledge." --newsblaze.com

"Is a must...meticulous research."--Boxing Digest

"Compelling arguments...unmistakable knowledge and passion." --The Ring

[R]ecommended as a valuable source to give historians a raft of interesting insights on [the] sport." Journal of Sport History

"If you care about boxing--it's future, it's past or both--then you have to read this book...thoroughly researched...articulately argued." --Newsday.com

"I loved everything about this book...should be required reading...very interesting...highly recommend it." --Cyber Boxing Zone

"Lively...Silver explored the magic, studied the history." --Philadelphia Daily News

"Lots of people may know boxing, but not many understand it: its spirit, its cultural significance, its storied past and its probable future. Mike Silver is one of the few, which is why anything he writes about it is essential reading for the true fan of the sport." --David Margolick, author of Beyond Glory: Joe Louis vs. Max Schmeling, and a World on the Brink

"Mike Silver is the go-to guy when boxing historians need information. In his eye-opening book, he argues strongly that boxing ain't what it used to be. Argue back if you want, but not before considering his opinions and the facts. This is a must-read for all fight fans, especially the young ones who think the sport started with Mike Tyson." --Steve Farhood, boxing analyst for Showtime and former editor-in-chief of The Ring magazine.
