And the winner is...JOE GRIMM!

He scored 24 KOs in a row and was never knocked out.
He was a winner in the ring, and a winner in life.

This is the story of a bantam boxer, his chaperoning older brother, and the time in which they lived. It is the 1920s, and there are boxing clubs in nearly every city in America. Joe Grimm weighs 118 pounds and is flat-footed—but he has a punch and a KO record that draw leading managers to add Joe to their stables. He trains in the same gym as Jim Braddock, the future Cinderella Man.

Joe’s awesome winning streak is interrupted when he and his brother are called home. He leaves the arenas with their cheering crowds and works as a butcher in his grocery shop bought with ring money for his family. Now the character traits that made him a boxing wonder make him a success in business.

The Gentleman Boxer captures the excitement and hope of an era when anything was possible and anyone could become a hero—or a champion. It is a tribute to the thousands of forgotten bantam prizefighters in the Golden Age of Boxing.
