One thing is true. In the 20's and 30's boxing had the greatest team of promoters, writers, and mgrs, which all worked together with the common goal of making boxing great. They were a tight nit group and the writers were the best of all time. They had the ability to make legends. Not taking away from the fighters. But if Runyon, Rice, Lardner, Igoe, and others couldn't make you sound great who could.
