“Fight” by Dan Barry

April 19, 2016


Dan BarryThis week, we look at “Fight,” written by Dan Barry for The New York Times in March 2016.

“Fight” tells the story of two fighters who faced off for their first professional boxing match, and the tragic result that followed. We talk about what it took to put together the story of what led both men into that ring, and what happened to the one who survived.

Dan Barry is a longtime columnist and an award-winning reporter for The New York Times and the author of four books.


Next week: check out Crowd Source by Davy Rothbart, a look at the bizarre world of “crowds for hire.”
