Hooking off the Jab
by Nigel Collins

From the smoky clubs of Philadelphia to the visiting room of an Indiana prison to the primetime spotlights of Las Vegas, Nigel Collins has covered boxing like no other writer in the world. His proximity to both the champions that wouldn’t stay down and the opponents that went down a little too easily allowed him to bring fans all the action both in and out of the ring. Hooking Off the Jab recounts five decades of incomparable access, incredible personalities and improbable outcomes in a sport that even the most jaded boxing fan could not accurately predict. Wherever and whenever the bell rang, Nigel Collins was there to answer it. International Boxing Hall of Famer Nigel Collins curates an anthology of over four decades of boxing writing with unprecedented access to the greatest fighters of the last several generations.
