    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.

    Things may look great for the boxer in purple. But in reality, he just decked his cornerman, not his opponent.

    He’s not the smartest cookie in the league.

    No, first you have to let his on the ring and then we start the fight

    Pasty Pete was not the smartest boxer, so when he was told to take a dive, he took it literally.

    “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.

    Next, the man he landed on sued for sexual harassment. After all, it was unwanted physical touching.

    The guy falling out of the ring was Jack Dempsey. Luis Firpo standing didn’t last long after that. Famous picture!

    Artistic, athletic, “the sweet science,” whatever, it still amount to battering, or being battered by, one’s fellow man.
