‘Now whoever has courage, and a strong and collected spirit in his breast, let him come forward, lace on the gloves and put up his hands.’

The walls of Gleason’s iconic gym in Brooklyn echo these words of the poet Virgil. Join Mischa Merz on her journey from Melbourne to Gleason’s and all the way to the US Masters Golden Gloves title and, along the way, discover the secret history of women in boxing, in The Sweetest Thing.

And, of course, you can buy a copy of The Sweetest Thing in good bookshops everywhere or just right here.
