More Jewish athletes have competed as boxers than all other professional sports combined; from 1901 to 1939, 29 Jewish boxers were recognized as world champions and more than 160 Jewish boxers ranked among the top contenders in their respective weight divisions. MIKE SILVER presents this vibrant social history in the first illustrated encyclopedic compendium of its kind.
