The perpetual “Pink of Condition” – Strength Magazine – July, 1925

Do you remember the first time you ran across the w. k. “pink of condition?” You were reading the sporting page ·of the paper the day that “Kid” Callahan, the Bethlehem boilermaker, was scheduled to meet Knockout Hogan, the “Michigan Wildcat,” at Madison Square Garden, or somewhere, for the middleweight championship or something. And the newspapers printed the final statements of the two men, made on the evening of the day before the fight.
