Inhaltsangabe: In his long-awaited masterwork The Gods of War, award-winning essayist and boxing historian Springs Toledo tells the world that "the greatest of all time" is neither Muhammad Ali nor Sugar Ray Robinson. The greatest - the 'god of war' - is someone beyond their reach, a true anomaly of the ring. The evidence is compelling. See it and decide for yourself. This countdown of the top-ten fighters of the modern era is a literary experience like no other, and it isn't all readers will find in this book. Toledo's writing has been described as "warrior poetry"; he goes beyond the usual factoids, dry text, and threadbare yarns to conjure up legendary fighters as they were. Some of them will punch holes through the pages; others will touch your heart. Reading enthusiasts, sports fans, and boxing's critics are invited to take a new look at the sweet science. It's worth the price of admission.

From the Inside Flap: After the final bell, a jubilant Duran leaps into the air. Before he lands he sees Leonard daring to raise his arms in victory and the coals of his eyes burn. He shoves and spits at his adversary, then stalks toward the ropes at ringside and grabs his crotch as he hurls Spanish epithets... The announcer shouts "le nouveau!" into the microphone, and victorious, the raging champion is hoisted up above the crowd -above the world- still cursing the vanquished.
~ The Fifth God of War
 
Sugar Ray Leonard's narrative about why he lost to Roberto Duran in their first fight is no less misleading than Duran's excuses for why he quit in the rematch. The truth behind Leonard's first professional loss is in this book; one of many gems in a series counting down the ten greatest fighters since 1920. Award-winning boxing writer Springs Toledo calls them "gods of war" and makes a compelling case for his conclusions. The greatest of them all, he writes, is neither Muhammad Ali nor the original Sugar Ray. If you're about to douse your stogie,shatter your tea cup, or drop this book, hold on, because his arguments will rattle your convictions.

The"Gods of War" series isn't all that readers will find in The Gods of War: Boxing Essays. Toledo's writing has been described as "warrior poetry" and this book is a showcase of what that means. It transcends factoids, dry text, and threadbare yarns and conjures up legendary fighters without pulling punches.

* Gaze at the tragic Sonny Liston's grave as he is pulled out from under the shadow of Ali and given an overdue gift of a birthday.

* Watch as heavyweight king Wladimir Klitchko is pitted against Jack Dempsey and found wanting.

* Stand in awe as Jewish fighters from first-century Palestine evolve into twentieth-century champions and show history what commitment is.

* Experience an insider's take on the deaths of four fighters and what they represent in a society losing its grip on masculinity, meaningfulness, and reality.

Boxing purists are in for a fresh look at an old love. Casual fans are in for a treat.Detractors will see for themselves what the allure is; and if their minds are open, they'll see boxing for what it has always been -a friend of the poor.

Ernest Hemingway, Jack London, Joyce Carol Oates, Richard Wright, Norman Mailer, and of course, A.J. Liebling have made boxing writing the pound-for-pound best in sports. Springs Toledo just threw a brick through their window.
