Jay Tunney, son of legendary world heavyweight champion (1926-1928) Gene Tunney, talks about his book “The Prizefighter and the Playwright” which chronicles the friendship between Gene Tunney and Irish world famous playwright George Bernard Shaw.

“From the beginning, it seemed a strange relationship, as Tunney was 40 years younger and the men could not have occupied more different worlds. Yet it is clear that these two famous men, comfortable on the world stage, longed for friendship when they were out of the celebrity spotlight. Full of surprises and revelations about Shaw and Tunney, this handsome book is also a fascinating look at their times.”
