“One fist was Irish!”
And a happy St. Patrick’s Day to us all! Hopefully, the Irish fist is the one knocking the other boxer out of the ring. I would be disappointed otherwise.
Fight Stories was the first fiction magazine to be devoted to just one sport, in this case boxing. The magazine started in 1928 and it was popular enough to run into the early 50s. This issue is from 1949 and features a cover from George Gross, who has been featured many times on this site. You can even see Gross’s signature in the bottom left corner of the cover.
I hope everyone has a good St. Patrick’s Day. They can cancel our parade but they can’t cancel our spirit!
