RARA-AVIS: Re: Boxing Fiction (was Fat City)

William Campbell Gault (creator of PIs - Brock Callahan and Joe Puma) published a crime novel which featured a boxer - The Canvas Coffin - Dell 1953.

John Sayles (the director) had a pretty good short story though not noir or hardboiled - about a boxer which I believe was in his first collection - The Anarchist's Convention and Other Stories .

Ernest Hemingway had a boxing short story - "Fifty Grand".
