The Sweet Science is a collection of boxing articles written by A.J. Liebling that appeared in The New Yorker from 1951 through 1963. Liebling was a devotee of boxing writer, Pierce Egan who published Boxiana, a chronicle of bare-knuckle fighting in the early 19th century. Egan described boxing as "the sweet science" and "the sweet science of bruising". Liebling cited Egan frequently and named his collection The Sweet Science in honor of Egan.
