"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Punch Drunk Love

If you dig boxing and boxing writing you must head on down to the Barnes and Noble in Tribeca tonight at 7. Banter favorite George Kimball, co-editor of “At the Fights: American Writers on Boxing,” will be joined by Pete Hamill, Mike Lupica and Robert Lipsyte.

Be there or be square.

I watched The Fighter on Saturday. I hit the youtube right after and watched Mickey's brother fight Sugar Ray. It was a pretty tame fight with some excitement in the middle. Dickey was definitely a squirrelly dude.
But if you haven't seen this particular round between Mickey and Gatti check it out. It'll make your head spin. If it was in a movie it would be called unrealistic.

those Mickey-Gatti fights were bona fide wars.

I loved those fights, Emmanuel Stewart named that round "The Greatest Round of the 20th Century" in an issue of The Ring
