Brady goes after the usual suspects, such as Don King, but has also heavily researched the financial dealings of the various sanctioning bodies and shows their claim to be non profit organisations who exist to fairly administer the sport as complete sham. In particular, the chapter on the FBI investigation into corruption in the IBF is dynamite. The wiretap narrative of fixed ratings etc is fascinating.
In conclusion, I couldn't recommend this more highly. Enjoy it.

Brady tells the stories of a litany of ex-champs and contenders who have been robbed of their money dreams and dignity, and who are then discarded like so much garbage after their usefulness has ended.
Brady, a fine writer and investigative journalist, takes no prisoners as he names the heroes, villians, bums and thieves.
Whether you are familiar with boxing or not you will shake your head in disbelief and disgust at what is described in these pages. This is so much more than a boxing book. It is also a sociological study and idictment of a segment of our society. This is a very American story and a very important book.
