Byron was promised a man in his lap. This is not what he expected.
Unlucky Eddie’s bad luck was still on a roll. He paid big bucks for a front row seat, the fight only lasted 30 seconds, and the guy he bet on was taking an unexpected siesta on his lap.
People suspected a fix when the boxer who got knocked out of the ring won the the fight.

Suicide seats are the best ones at roller derby.
Push him back in, guys. The fight is not over.

Kinda reminds me of the “splash zone” at SeaWorld.
The modeling contracts provided for chiropractic care, “as needed”.

“Dempsey and Firpo (sometimes referred to as Dempsey Through The Ropes1) is a 1923–1924 oil canvas painting by George Bellows, depicting the September 14, 1923 boxing match between American Jack Dempsey and Argentine Luis Firpo. The painting depicts the dramatic moment when Firpo knocked Dempsey out of the ring, despite the fact that Dempsey was the eventual winner that night. Bellows gave himself a cameo as the balding man at the extreme left of the picture.”- From Wikipedia.

I’m a huge George Bellows fan!
I never realized that Firpo has such a good left cross!
The guy falling out of the ring was Jack Dempsey. Luis Firpo standing didn’t last long after that. Famous picture!
