I dunno maybe I didn't communicate properly. Any Roman in charge of solders can not only box, but instruct. Caesar is no exception. In fact he was a prodigy. I don't think I've successfully communicated the importance Roman's placed on boxing. You could not move through ranks w/o boxing being part of the trial. In short no Roman general is a bad boxer. They are all top rank boxers of their time. Otherwise they'd never make it. These earth salting fellas were no joke.
Too right mate, Could you imagine coming face to face with Marius or Sertorius, or maybe even scarier,.... Spartacus, or that Greek who was the greatest PanKration champion of several Olympic Games. And it wasn't just Romans either. Just imagine facing down Ghenghis Khan, or those Viking Berserkers, particularly that Huge Viking That held off the Saxons on Stanford Bridge for several minutes on his own, you know the guy, the one that some clever Mercian or Wessexman floated under the bridge to stick his spear right up the Norsemans Khyber pass,.... well I don't think that guy's named has come down to us but he sounds as if he was kinsman to Hardrada, obviously he was the prime example of a Berserker. Man it was a hard world then, what with Romans, Alemmanni, Vandals, Magyars, Vikings, Angles, Marcomanni, Mongols, Tartars, Salian Franks, Parthians, Ostrogoths and other walking nightmare machines, I wonder which way one should turn,...................................... I think I'd find a cave high up in the Alps and Hide,.................... and then there was the Spanish Inquisition..
