The Fight Racket


               Call it Boxing, Prizefighting, the Sweet Science, the Fight Game or, if you like your synonyms hard-boiled, The Fight Racket. By any name it is the best friend a writer ever had. It doesn't matter if the writer is a newspaper wage-slave feverishly trying to make his deadline after a title fight or a big name author who has parachuted in to survey toe-to-toe gladiators and the exotica surrounding them.
