Summary
The sport of boxing provokes love, loathing and sometimes lust with equal intensity. It's a ticket out of poverty, a middle-class fascination and a promoter's goldmine; it can hook people with a primal burst of adrenaline and clinch them tight, or repel them utterly from the first jab. In On the Chin Alex McClintock uses his own unlikely progress through the amateur ranks as a springboard to explore the history, culture and contradictions of the sweet science - with detours through some of its notable characters, including: Benny 'The Ghetto Wizard' Leonard, 'The Boxing Barista' Luigi Coluzzi, the immaculately named Trenton Titsworth, and the great Ruben Olivares, once described as 'the undisputed champion of the bender and the cabaret'. Informative, insightful and effortlessly entertaining, On the Chin is your essential guide to the art of hitting and getting hit
