Oldie but goodie:Thomas Sowell on Old Boxing Matcheshttp://townhall.com/columnists/thomassowell/2009/12/29/old_boxing_matches
Mr. Townsend, i am an Italian man, i would like to add that Marciano always respected his rivals, whilst Ali often mocked his rivals when they were on the ground.
Yes and I believe Sowell touched on that issue among all he wrote about Thanks.
Mr.Townsend, if possible, i would like to remind another great boxer, Primo Carnera, a gentle and noble giant, who was exploited and deceived by perfidious managers.Today is the 50th anniversary of his death, we Italians will never forget this great man.
Just read up on him. Very interesting. Thanks.Requiem for a Heavyweight, Rod Serling's 1956 Emmy Award-winning teleplay for Playhouse 90 directed by Ralph Nelson (who also won an Emmy), focused on down-and-out former heavyweight boxer Harlan "Mountain" McClintock. The travails of McClintock, who was played by Jack Palance (Sean Connery played the part on British television and Anthony Quinn essayed the role in the 1962 film), was thought by many boxing fans to resemble Carnera's life.
This is great: "For breakfast, Primo has a quart of orange juice, two quarts of milk, nineteen pieces of toast, fourteen eggs, a loaf of bread and half a pound of Virginia ham."
