About

Summary

As The New Yorker writes, "Toole is a traditionalist, enamored of a boozy romanticism and colorful vernacular, and when he throws a punch it usually finds its target.” We are excited to share "Training a Heavyweight," from this powerful collection.

F. X. Toole was the pseudonym of Jerry Boyd (1930–2002), a boxing trainer and author whose work inspired the award-winning film Million Dollar Baby. In 1988, Boyd began writing about boxing, using the pseudonym F. X. Toole to keep his hobby secret from his colleagues in the boxing world.
