Resurrecting The Champ

Los Angeles Times

A captivating story of a fallen boxing champion, told in what’s journalism at its best. Frist of all, you don’t need to be into boxing to appreciate this article, as it is not about boxing at all, but about how things in life can go all wrong pretty quickly. While the story of “The Champ” itself is already worth your attention, the way it is told is what makes it really shine. The article is basically a making-of of itself, with the author candidly mixing in his personal story and his feelings while reporting someone else’s story. Surely one of the best pieces I’ve read all year.
