Author Talk: Jeffrey Sussman, “Boxing & The Mob: The Notorious History of the Sweet Science”

Author Talk and Signing, Jeffrey Sussman “Boxing and the Mob: The Notorious History of the Sweet Science”

In Boxing and the Mob: The Notorious History of the Sweet Science, Jeffrey Sussman tells the story of the coercive and criminal underside of boxing, covering nearly the entire twentieth century. He profiles some of its most infamous characters, such as Owney Madden, Frankie Carbo, and Frank Palermo, and details many of the fixed matches in boxing’s storied history. In addition, Sussman examines the influence of the mob on legendary boxers—including Primo Carnera, Sugar Ray Robinson, Max Baer, Carmen Basilio, Sonny Liston, and Jake LaMotta—and whether they caved to the mobsters’ threats or refused to throw their fights.

Boxing and the Mob is the first book to cover a century of fixed fights, paid-off referees, greedy managers, misused boxers, and the mobsters who controlled it all. True crime and the world of boxing are intertwined with absorbing detail in this notorious piece of American history. (provided by Publisher)

Jeffrey Sussman is the author of thirteen nonfiction books, as well as numerous articles and short stories about boxing. He is a regular writer for the premier boxing website www.boxing.com and the author of Max Baer and Barney Ross: Jewish Heroes of Boxing (2016) and Rocky Graziano: Fists, Fame, and Fortune (2018), both published by Rowman & Littlefield. Sussman is the president of a public relations and marketing firm based in New York City

Author Talk, Peter Wood, “The Boy Who Hit Back”

“When Matt discovers a dark secret about Barlow, an ex-prizefighter, he’s convinced he is the only person who can save him and risks everything in the process. As Matt sinks deeper into New York City’s skid-row, a hell-hole infested with liars, cheats, thugs, depravity, kidnapping, and death, he discovers that sometimes, the brightest lights come from the darkest places. Determined to claw himself and Sailor back from the brink of destruction, Matthew discovers new bravery, innate cunning, and something even more rewarding than he could have ever imagined. “

“We’re in John Green territory, without the tears, as a tough boy and a smart girl drag a punch-drunk fighter back to life and along the way make their own comebacks. Peter throws a sweet sentence and can knock you out with a paragraph!” Robert Lipsyte, author of The Contender
