Four Kings (PB) Their names are legendary: Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Thomas "Hit Man" Hearns, and Roberto Duran. They were exceptional boxers endowed with unique combinations of power and speed. They matured in the 1980s and fought each other as middleweights. With unforgettable courage and skill, they ruled the ring and ushered in the last Golden Age of boxing.

Veteran sports journalist George Kimball takes an authoritative look at the rivalries that fueled this great era in sports history. The result is a fast-paced, blow-by-blow account of four extraordinary adversaries and a remarkable boxing epoch.

"Four Kings is a thriller and George Kimball a prince among sportwriters. Because of the tremendous dignity of the four fighters and Kimball's splendid prose, this becomes an epic poem of a book, a book that lifts the heart.

--Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes, 'Tis, and Teacher Man

"Very accurate and well-researched . . . a phenomenon . . . well-written. I couldn't put it down. I loaned it to a friend and he won't give it back!"

--Emanuel Steward, World Champion Boxing Trainer
