Budd Schulberg's love affair with boxing began when he was twelve, when he saw his first bouts at the Hollywood Legion. Over the years, between novels, he was Sports Illustrated's first boxing editor and covered title fights for Playboy, Esquire, Newsday, and the New York Post. This new book collects the best of Mr. Schulberg's reportage on the Sweet Science, from Benny Leonard to Muhammad Ali. Budd Schulberg's love affair with boxing began when he was twelve, when he saw his first bouts at the Hollywood Legion. Over the years, between novels, he was Sports Illustrated's first boxing editor and covered title fights for Playboy, Esquire, Newsday, and the New York Post. This new book collects the best of Mr. Schulberg's reportage on the Sweet Science, from Benny Leonard to Muhammad Ali to George Foreman. In addition to pieces on the great fights and great fighters of the last seventy-five years, Mr. Schulberg offers reflections on the social history of the fight game; the mystique of the heavyweight championship; the seamy side of the boxing business; and his own sparring match with Ernest Hemingway, when two aficionados of prizefighting had a verbal go at each other. Throughout, Mr. Schulberg is a pleasure to read and a passionate defender of an often maligned sport. "Boxing and civilization-any civilization-stand in delicate balance," he writes. "But if our civilization is indeed declining and if it finally falls, it will not be because Joe Louis clobbered Schmeling or took the measure of Billy Conn. Or because Ali made Bad Sonny Liston quit in his corner. Or because Joe Frazier landed a tremendous, humbling left hook on the controversial jaw of gallant braggadocio Muhammad Ali.

Sparring with Hemingway: Hardback: Ivan R Dee, Inc: 9781566630801: 01 Apr 1995: First published in the USA in 1995, a collection of the author's journalistic pieces on boxing covering the past 75 years, from Benny Leonard and Muhammad Ali to George Foreman and Mike Tyson. Also reflects on the social history of boxing and explores the mystique of the heavyweight championship. Budd Schulberg's love affair with boxing began when he was twelve, when his father took him to the fights at the Hollywood Legion. Over the years, between his celebrated novels and screenplays, he has been Sports Illustrated's first boxing editor and covered title bouts for Playboy, Esquire, Newsday, and the New York Post. Sparring with Hemingway collects for the first time the best of Mr. Schulberg's "takes" on the Sweet Science, from "The Great" Benny Leonard to Muhammad Ali to George Foreman: memorable personalities and their unforgettable fights. Mr. Schulberg is a passionate fan as well as an expert observer (of boxing and human nature), and his stories capture the sights, sounds, and sometimes even the smells of the fight game. Along with vivid pieces on the great fights and the great fighters of the last seventy-five years, Mr. Schulberg offers reflections on the social history of boxing, explores the mystique of the heavyweight championship, rails against the seamy side of the boxing business, and recalls his celebrated sparring match with Ernest Hemingway, when two aficionados of "the game" had a verbal (verging on physical) go at each other. In the opinion of anxious onlookers, "Papa bullied him all over the ring but finally quit between rounds.
