June 5, 1961: It is always a source of wonder to me that a sport as savage and cruel as prizefighting doesn't brutalize its practitioners. Yet, it doesn't. A ballplayer after losing a game is a snarling, cursing, tantrum-throwing terror. Football players smash fists into lockers. But a fighter weeps.
