Malcolm (Flash) Gordon was the publisher and writer of a boxing journal named "Tonight's Boxing Program and Weekly Newsletter," which he published out of his apartment in Sunnyside, Queens, New York, from the late 1960s until the mid-1980s.

Gordon could usually be found outside of Madison Square Garden on fight night, selling his program, which was highly regarded in the trade. Gordon resourcefully bought out-of-town papers for the results and news, maintained records, and covered the sport in a muckraking style, intent upon uncovering the corruption and other ills surrounding boxing. One of his most important stories was helping to uncover the Ring Magazine Scandal.

Gordon quit publishing his newsletter during the mid-1980s. He has kept a low-profile since then, and his whereabouts are largely unknown.
