Relive the glory days of Jewish boxing, when sluggers Barney Ross and Sammy Luftspring ruled the ring, with the Menschwarmers’ special guest, Lou Eisen, an encyclopedia of boxing knowledge. Lou talks about the earliest Jewish boxers, the sport’s evolution and an era when thuggish Nazis forced Jews to hit back in the streets.
