“The rough, dirty, tough fighters, and the lying, cheating, monopoly hunting fight promoters, and fighter’s managers–they run and ruin everything. Mean! Why, those promoters give a baby boxer $30 to go four rounds and then take $10.50 away from them for their share. The managers have those fellows just where they want ‘em. I know their talk. I’ve heard it. ‘You let this fellow win tonight or you don’t fight here again.’ That’s the way they talk.”
