The Abysmal Brute

A breezy tale showing the crookedness of the methods of prize-ring managers specially in fleecing the prize-ring public in betting.

Then follows a whirlwind wooing, exposing of the frauds and retirement. This link for educational purpose only. Please remove file from your computer after familiarization.

Before anyone knew there was such a thing, Jack London gave us the natural: Young Pat Glendon has never drunk alcohol nor tasted tobacco. He loves nature, is afraid of cities, and is shy of women. And he is a perfect fighter. Summoned from the city to consider such a prospect, cynical Sam Stubener, manager of prize-fighters, is struck by the boy’s extraordinary athletic grace—and soon man and boy are off to San Francisco to take on the heavyweight world.

The Abysmal Brute is the story of natural grace pitted against worldly brutishness. A subtle social drama played out in the arena of sport—in a day long before sport moved to the center of American culture—it is also a rousing romantic tale in the tradition of one of our great storytellers. As Pat hones his skill—and his curious style—on one champion fighter after another, he contends for the heart of a lovely admirer and for the soul of professional boxing, whose rampant corruption his blows expose.
