Muhammad Ali and the Greatest Heavyweight GenerationMuhammad Ali and the Greatest Heavyweight Generation

Tom Cushman

Narrated by

Available from Audible


Book published by Southeast Missouri State University Press


Tom Cushman, one of boxing’s great sportswriters, followed the “Ali generation” of fighters from New York to Las Vegas, Nassau to Zaire, reporting for the Philadelphia Daily News from 19661982 and for the San Diego Tribune, 19821992. Muhammad Ali and the Greatest Heavyweight Generation chronicles the behind-the-scenes stories of the great athletes in boxing’s biggest-and-best age—their victories and struggles, crimes and passions, heydays and swansongs.

This collection of essays, gleaned from Cushman’s personal files as well as his recent research, brings to light the backgrounds of the fighters, in and out of the ring: Liston’s tragic death, Foreman’s rise from hell to heaven, Holmes’s crushing defeat and his great heart, Everett’s murder—and everywhere, always, the unforgettable voice and charismatic volume of the astounding Muhammad Ali.

Tom Cushman worked as a reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph (19591966), as reporter and eventually staff columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News (19661982), as Sports Editor and columnist for the San Diego Tribune (19821992), and as Sports Editor and columnist for the San Diego Union-Tribune (19922002).
