    The first true national and international sports celebrities were boxers in the late 1800s. Soon after the abolition of slavery in the United States the first World Champions of the sport were crowned. As the Champion of the World these boxing heavyweights were held on a pedestal of athletic dominance, and in the eyes of some white Americans, and many of those in the boxing community, these champions had to be white, anything else would challenge the belief of white Anglo-Saxon superiority that many white Americans were clinging to at the time.

    Chris says: "Neat topic; boring book."
