Revives the era when college boxing attracted huge crowds, outdrawing the professional bouts. In 1940, when Joe Louis defended his heavyweight crown before 11,000 fans in New York's Madison Square Garden, collegiate boxers battled before 15,000 fans in Madison. This book tells the story of how and why this college sport abruptly ended in 1960.

"Doug Moe, the inimitable chronicler of Madison, has written a wonderful book that brings back to life those last bittersweet days of collegiate boxing. As a native Madisonian who grew up in the shadows of the UW Field House, and who witnessed the match that ended Charlie Mohr's life, I was amazed by Moe's research and grateful that here, finally, is the true, unvarnished story."—David Maraniss, author of They Marched into Sunlight

"A story of exhilaration and heartbreak. Reading Lords of the Ring was a nostalgia trip for me, and it probably reads like a Greek tragedy for the book's leading characters from Wisconsin's glory days of boxing."—Tom Butler, retired sportswriter and columnist, Wisconsin State Journal

"Although we know how the story will end, Doug Moe manages to create a sense of unfolding mystery. . . . He's a master."—Marshall J. Cook, author of Baseball's Good Guys
