    John E. Oden, author Life in the Ring

    in Sports

    Duck, Mr. Media! Money manager turned boxing author John E. Oden aims for that big mouth of yours!



    John E. Oden is a white collar boxer and author of Life in the Ring: Lessons and Inspirations from the Sport of Boxing. Oden is a Principal of AllianceBernstein, a global money management and investment research firm in New York City, but after hours, he can be found sparring in the ring enjoying the “sweet science”.

    White collar boxing has become quite controversial since its ban in New York State in 2006. But professionals, like Oden, feel it is an excellent way to work off the stresses of the everyday 9 to 5. His voice joins a chorus of other heavyweights lobbying for the return of White Collar Boxing to New York. Notable New York and sports personalities like boxing writer Bert Sugar, world famous trainer Emanuel Steward and Bruce Silverglade, owner of the famed Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn, have all called for the ban to be lifted.

    Life in the Ring: Lessons and Inspirations from the Sport of Boxing has received advanced praise from Senator John McCain and Donald Trump, and features a foreword by Bert Sugar. It is a collection of inspirational short stories of 15 of our most iconic boxers and the life lessons each boxer imparts that can be applied outside of the ring, and in the office – it serves as a guide to success in the workplace, i.e. how to interact with colleagues, tips for perseverance, and getting ahead.
