Book Review: Boxing Is My Sanctuary - A Collection Of Essays By Theodore R. (Ted) Sares
21.12.07 - By Jim Amato: If you like boxing, if you love boxing then you will love this book. Ted "The Bull" Sares has a way of taking the sport of boxing to it's inner core. Stripped down, mano y mano. Ask no quarter, give no quarter.
This is a man who has followed boxing for years sharing his profound memories in words that make you feel that you are almost at ringside. Ted does not shy away from anything. He shares the courage of the fighters he writes about but he also shares the tragedy of some.
This is the most heart felt boxing book I've read in years. Ted's perspective on the sport is absolutely endearing. To me he is the A.J. Liebling of our era. That is the highest compliment I can pay to a boxing writer and Ted has surely earned it.
I highly recommend the book to any boxing fan. It is like walking through history, up close and personal.
