Eclipse of the Sun: Boxing Poems, by Red Shuttleworth, was published in the summer of 2023 by University of Nevada Press.

Eclipse of the Sun, Red Shuttleworth, presents poems in homage to boxers... protagonists in a tough, hard sport... valiant men... often those with no recourse but to fight in the ring to rise from poverty... a sport that leaves most pro boxers poor and/or damaged.

Red Shuttleworth, oldest active (amateur or professional) boxer, is trained by Isaac Jones at Sacred Scars Gym in Moses Lake, Washington.  Shuttleworth's boxing manager is California attorney Tim Swift.
