    This work brings a fresh perspective to the history of modern prizefighting as it evolved over several centuries to become one of the most lasting and valued sporting attractions. With his primary focus outside the ropes, Lang shows how organizers, publicity agents, and political allies overcame both legal and moral roadblocks to make fisticuffing a lively commercial enterprise. Begins with the clandestine bare-knuckle fights in 18th century London, and ends with the vibrant, large-scale productions of modern Las Vegas fight nights. He explains many of the myths about antiquarian prizefighters, describes the origins of slave fight folklore, and examines the forces that transformed Las Vegas into the worlds leading venue for important fights. 274 Pgs. 2008
