This dissertation presents the personal narratives of professional boxers in Japan in documentary form through interview, participant observation, and research involving translation from Japanese texts. The product of six years of continuous research conducted mainly in Western (Kansai) Japan, the study focuses on hanguri seishin ("hungry spirit") as it emerges from and enfolds the life stories of boxers encountered mainly in Kansai. Through presenting in context and analyzing the stories of Japanese boxers, it aims to discover why they box, how they construct their identities as boxers and give meaning to their lives, their insights into and conceptions of boxing, and the roles they play in their performance of the sport.
