Spanning the period between 1967 and 2005, this compilation includes 84 of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ira Berkow's columns on boxing. Readers will meet some of the greatest names in the sport's history in the pages of this book, including Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Joe Louis, and Mike Tyson.

Among the unforgettable stories gathered in this collection are the heated rivalry between Ali and "Smokin' Joe" Frazier, Tyson's infamous "Bite Fight" in 1997, and the will-he-or-won't-he retirement saga of Sugar Ray Leonard. Written in Berkow's gripping prose, the columns included in 'Counterpunch' chronicle the most important moments in boxing over the last four decades.
