Summary
"Approaching 19th-century sports and boxing with a 21st-century perspective, Strong Boy brings to life a man--John L. Sullivan--who was the gold standard of boxing for more than a decade; who had a big ego, big mouth, and bigger appetites; who ate and drank with reckless abandon; whose womanizing, drunken escapades, and constant presence on the police blotter were a godsend to the burgeoning newspaper industry; whose image was once the most recognizable in America. He was our nation's first sports hero, and his name was not Babe Ruth"--
