Boxing 50 Rounds at 50 – Strength Magazine – June, 1926

The world at large is all too prone to be a bit cynical when the topic under consideration is the future career of the professional fighting man, after his days in the limelight have passed. The world at large is much given to pointing to those who are always most conspicuous, the human derelicts, the flotsam in the backwash. Perhaps that is true of any game, and the world too frequently forgets that it is the individual, not the game. In the realm of the ring the Terry McGoverns, the Stanley Ketchells, and others who come to an untimely or pathetic end after slipping from the heights are the most conspicuous.
