This wild card factor is behind some of boxing’s most electric moments. It’s exactly what saved Andy...

Review — “Bouts Of Mania: Ali, Frazier, Foreman, And An America On The Ropes”

It seems an eternity since the heavyweight division was relevant. As a teenager in the 1990s, I watched awestruck as Evander Holyfield, Riddick Bowe, Lennox Lewis and a couple of others temporarily loaned each other the title.
