Look, I'm a runner not a fighter. When I was asked by VOYA Magazine to create a list of good sports books for fighting/combat sports, I felt a little unqualified at first. I mean, how many librarians are versed in MMA fighting, boxing, or wresting? Sports involving beating people into submission are not exactly the hot topic of conversation at library conventions. And contrary to popular belief, I have never gotten into the ring with another librarian to settle a score over a conflicting Dewey classification. (But judging from looks of things at these gatherings, I might actually stand a good chance of winning)
I'll be damned, however, if I was going to get sand kicked in my face! So, I fought back with a list of sports combat books that I think is terrific and that I am sure will knock anyone out in your library!
Here is a copy of my story that appeared in the October issue of VOYA Magazine. Take a read and consider some of these selections. I have found that there is a huge appetite for these titles.
