The Fryup Flyweight (Select)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 17, 2013 12:06AM
Description: 'The Fryup Flyweight' is the story of a boxer named Roscoe Siskin, and his extraordinary rise from a battered old backwoods static all the way to the Las Vegas billboards. 'The Fryup Flyweight' stretches the sport's traditional rags-to-riches stereotype to its most extreme, and spotlights the role of the media in both his wild ascent and his inevitable crash back to earth.
