His role in contributing to the Encyclopedia of the First Amendment and its online updates has been indispensable.”
– Dr. John R. Vile, Professor of Political Science and Dean of the University Honors College at Middle Tennessee State University

I highly recommend listening to David’s take on this essential freedom.”

“David Hudson’s knowledge of the law is matched only by his knowledge of combat sports—especially boxing. He’s the most sought after boxing judging in our area and has the respect of promoters, veteran fighters, and follow judges alike. I received my law degree in great part due to his teachings, and am now a boxing judge myself solely because of his influence and his passion for the sweet science.”
– J.T. Conway, Nashville-area boxing judge
“[Hudon’s] encyclopedic knowledge of boxing history combined with his real-world judging experience make him uniquely qualified to provide an enlightened, in-depth, and unparalleled explanation and discussion of boxing history.”
– Stuart Scott, lawyer and professional boxing judge
 “Boxing writer, historian and International World championship boxing judge, David Hudson is back with an audio lecture course that packs a punch on the history of boxing. Hudson is a noted author of previous boxing books including An Autopsy.. Boxing in America. Since 1998, Hudson has also judged professional boxing matches and his resume includes several world title fights around the world. Hudson’s passion and historical knowledge of the sweet science shines through in this lecture series.”
