The definitive series on America’s boxing greats by a renowned boxing expert, author of over 40 books, and world-champion boxing judge.The bare-knuckle boxer John L. Sullivan in the late 1800s, the ferocious fists of “Iron” Mike Tyson in the 1980s, the culture shock of the legendary Jack Johnson, the worldwide phenomenon of Muhammad Ali—the sport of boxing has shaped American culture for more than a century.No sport is more enthralling than boxing—called “the noble art” and the “sweet science.” As famed boxing announcer Larry Merchant once noted, boxing is the “theater of the unexpected.” Its storied history has seen momentous bouts, the breakdown of racial barriers, and fights of the century. In this thrilling 18-part audio series, the inimitable David L. Hudson, Jr., takes you on a thrilling ringside ride. You’ll explore the rich history of the sport, its greatest heavyweight champions, controversial decisions, historic upsets, and much more.  Along the way, you will hear the sagas of such luminaries as Jack Johnson, Joe Louis, Jersey Joe Walcott, Sugar Ray Robinson, Floyd Mayweather, Oscar De La Hoya, Sugar Ray Leonard, Rocky Marciano, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, and Mike Tyson. Other lectures include segments on controversial decisions, great ring tragedies, ring weirdness, and bare-knuckle boxing. You don’t want to miss this revelatory, no-holds-barred exploration of boxing. This course is part of the Learn25 Collection.
