The Sweet Science

Thinking of taking in a live boxing card tonight.

Headlining the bout are, Danny “The Bronx Bomber” Santiago, fighting William Bailley of Bakersfield, California. Considering the names of the pugilists, and boxing resumes, the Bomber should be considered the clear favorite.

The “kid” Bailley as I refer to him, is a well natured young man, separated from home by the vast width of this country. I had occasion to speak with him after the weigh-in, finding him upbeat and relaxed, and with no apparent anxiety over his prospects. He seemed just happy to be here.

He has no local following, so I shall be his rooting section. An ormy of one.
