Summary

Thomas Hauser's recording of the contemporary boxing scene has become boxing's most eagerly anticipated written work. Booklist has called Hauser "the most respected boxing journalist working today and perhaps the best ever." Robert Lipsyte calls him "the best boxing writer of our time." And the New . . . is the latest compilation of Hauser's essential catalog on boxing. It brings readers into the dressing room with fighters like Manny Pacquiao and Sergio Martinez in the moments before 2011's biggest fights. Hauser's award-winning investigative journalism exposes the inner workings of HBO Sports and the economic realities that drive boxing today. There's a look back in time at the incomparable Henry Armstrong, and much more.
