Ladies and Gentlemen, “The Gods of War” –  Award-winning essayist and boxing historian Springs Toledo is pleased to announce the release of his new book, The Gods of War.

Reading enthusiasts are invited to experience what has been described as “warrior poetry.”

Sports fans are in for a treat.

Critics of the sweet science will see for themselves what the allure is as legendary champions and contenders punch holes through the pages, and at times even touch the heart.

Included in the book is an unforgettable presentation of Toledo’s findings for the top-ten greatest fighters of the modern era. Be warned—“The greatest of all time” is neither Muhammad Ali nor Sugar Ray Robinson. The “god of war” is someone beyond their reach, a true anomaly of the ring.

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

Springs Toledo is a member of the Boxing Writers Association of America, International Boxing Research Organization, International Boxing Hall of Fame Committee, a founding member of the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, and is a featured contributor to

He was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. The Gods of War: Boxing Essays (Tora, hardcover, 218 pages) is now available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Signed or inscribed copies are $25 (additional shipping charges outside the
