Braddock, Max Baer, and the Greatest Upset in Boxing History 㭙 ePUB By Jeremy Schaap ᷕ In retelling the story of a near impossible sports comeback in 1935, Schaap intricately chronicles the history of boxing during the Depression Jimmy Braddock, an Irish American heavyweight who began his career as a light heavyweight, was determined to win the title until a series of jinxes hit the stock market crashed, he broke his dominant hand and a succession of losses crushed his spirit Schaap, host of ESPN s Outside the Lines, goes into captivating detail on the brawny, reserved Braddock, who, at his lowest moments, was reduced to living off government relief and doing grueling work on the Hoboken, N.J., docks But the story is as much about Max Baer, the lovably clownish and handsome heavyweight Braddock defeated as a 10 to one underdog The account is inspiring no one ever thought Braddock would come back, especially against Baer, who d previously killed two men in the ring Braddock succeeded with the help of his manager, the short, fast talking Joe Gould the two were the sport s favorite odd couple Boxing enthusiasts will be than satisfied by Schaap s meticulous account, which includes round by round details of the fight, as well as profiles of other fighters of the era Not overly emotional, the story hits a nerve at just the right moments and features many of the same elements that made Seabiscuit a hit Photos Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Just a few months removed from receiving welfare to supplement his income as a dockworker, a small, slow, washed up fighter became heavyweight champion of the world James J Cinderella Man Braddock s life makes a heck of a story, but there hasn t been a biography of him in decades Schaap, an ESPN veteran, portrays Braddock as a man of his time After a promising start in the late 1920s, Braddock a lovable family man with three kids ended up as broke and beaten as the country But with the help of a fast talking manager whose passion for the sport was equaled only by Braddock s own, the fighter managed to emerge from his Great Depression to make an improbable run at the title, culminating in the defeat of the gargantuan Max Baer in 1935 Like a SportsCenter puff piece, Schaap s account can get repetitive and doesn t always delve deep But the fights here are crisply drawn, and Braddock s upsets have that Hoosiers thrill factor Plus, it s refreshing to find a boxing story where the right guy wins, nobody cheats, and most everyone lives happily ever after
