About the Book

An inside look at the world of professional boxing, From Fightin' to Writin' focuses on the stories few have heard.

Whether it's the young prospect on his way up, the champion looking to hold on to his title, or the grizzled veteran hoping for that one big break, award-winning boxing writer Thomas Gerbasi brings their stories to you with a hard-hitting immediacy that makes you feel like you're in the locker room with some of boxing's toughest warriors before the big fight.

Covering everything from women's boxing and the heavyweight division to Olympians on the rise and the international fight scene, this is not a book about Mike Tyson, Oscar De La Hoya, or Muhammad Ali. Instead, From Fightin' to Writin' takes you deeper than ever before into the lives of fighters before and after they hit the big time.
