Beast-Cover427
“A beautiful account of an underworld of in-your-face bad boys.”
– Bill Buford, author of Among the Thugs and Heat

“A poignant, intimate look at professional fighters and their lives. Merlino pulls you in as he was pulled in; and in the end, understanding is earned, not given.”
—Sam Sheridan, author of A Fighter’s Heart and The Fighter’s Mind

“Beautifully reported and written with rollicking flair, Beast is every bit as electric as the ferocious sport it chronicles. By the time you reach the last page, you will be so emotionally invested in each fighter’s turbulent journey that you’ll yearn for a sequel—or, better yet, a trilogy.”
—Brendan I. Koerner, author of The Skies Belong to Us
