From Chris Akers’ article for FightPost:
Boxing is the one sport that has always attracted the arts more than any other. From famous writers like Norman Mailer and Joyce Carol Oates to movies about the sport being amongst the best films that Hollywood has ever offered, the lives of boxers and the sport’s inner workings have been the inspiration for several artistic depictions.
Lori Grinker’s recently released book Mike Tyson: 1981-1991 is a collection of photographs taken of Tyson from 1981 to 1991, covering the period from when he started learning his craft in the Catskills with Cus D’Amato to just before his prison conviction in the early 1990s.
