The CBZ presents another classic boxing-themed radio show. This month we bring you an episode of Duffy's Tavern ("Where the elite meet to eat"), from April 13, 1951, starring Maxie Rosenbloom.


American Perspective

Pray if you want.
Gentlemen, you are
witnessing the demise
of a great revolution.
What glorious characters
Sullivan, Dempsey, Armstrong,
Duran, to name a few.
The list is endless.

-The night Joe Louis
knocked out Max Schemling-

The sport that carries
the most weight
in American history
presently weighs less
than the nickels
on a dead man's eyes.

-Tom Smario
