I've had this book for a long time, but reread it when I moved to Oakland, where this story takes place. It's about a young man, a girl, and the boxing ring, all told with London's colorful style. Read Sea Wolf
and this to get acquainted with Jack London.

..."her first great deed was when she wrung from him his promise to cease fighting.
And he, after the way of men, pursuing the dream of love and striving for possession of the precious and deathless object of desire, had yielded. And yet, in the very moment of promising her, he knew vaguely, deep down, that he could never abandon the Game; that somewhere, sometime, in the future, he must go back to it."

#277 of 1000 softcovers published by Oakland's Star Rover House. Illustrations by Henry Hutt and T.C. Lawrence.
