In My Father’s Fighter, Vincent Rosen, a 35-year-old Manhattan English teacher, inherits the management of a prize fighter from his father. The fighter is Mickey Davis, a white light-heavyweight contender with a doomed air, a reputation for dirty fighting, and plenty of neuroses and sexual obsessions. With his Ivy league education and bookish nature, Vincent does not share his father’s passion for boxing, yet is slowly seduced by the fighting world. This is a comic tale that moves from the privileged Upper East Side to the down-and-out bars of Las Vegas.
