Featuring Todd Snyder, author of Bundini: Don’t Believe the Hype
Created and hosted by writers Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth, Squawkin’ Sports is a new series featuring book chats with grown-up authors writing about grown-ups playing kiddie games. For this installment, Sauer and Roth chat with Todd Snyder, the son of a West Virginia boxing trainer, on his new book Bundini: Don’t Believe the Hype. Fifty years after he coined the iconic phrase “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee,” Drew “Bundini” Brown remains one of boxing’s most mysterious and misunderstood figures. Cornerman and confidant to two of the greatest fighters ever—Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali—Brown's impact on the sport and the culture at large is undeniable. In Bundini, Snyder digs deep into Brown’s expansive story, revealing not only how he became Muhammad Ali’s “hype man” but also, as boxing’s greatest motivator, a model for others who seek to inspire, in any endeavor.
