Uncomprimising, brilliantly written boxing commentary from the author of the acclaimed Four Kings
George Kimball spent a quarter-century as a sports columnist for the Boston Herald and wrote the popular American At Large column in the Irish Times from 1997. In 1985 he was awarded the Nat Fleischer Award for Excellence in Boxing Journalism from the Boxing Writers Association of America. He covered nearly 400 world-title fights in a four-decade long sports writing career and his bestselling book Four Kings has been acclaimed as one of the best books ever written on boxing. Sadly, George Kimball died in July 2011.
