There are glamour gyms, and Glamour venues, and glamour gladiators in the world of fisticuffs for money. This isn't about that. These are the tales of the things that the famous fighters rise above, the places and times where dues are paid. We dealing with the boxing history of the Pacific northwest, the country that produced the great Welterweight Jimmy McLarnin. And not really anyone since. Small gyms where a few dedicated trainers try to find the next big thing. And try, and try, and try again. A good book about the sheer difficulty of making an impression on the rest of a world wide sport that has its own axes to grind. Good to read, but daunting, once you think about it. ( )
