You would need to show your work, Red, to receive partial credit for #3.

Just learning this sentence would have been a major life challenge for B, C and D. Cobb might have had the best chance, outside of Cleverly all right, who has a degree in mathematics. But you need to show me your work, boy, your reasoning process, by God.

Any other guesses? Kem awn! Anyone? That's right. That's right.

"When I was a boxer, I wanted to be champion of the world, not the richest man in the world."

What the hell is wrong with this outfit anyway. I am supposed to have more points. I was on here waiting for them. Nothing happened. I am sick of being cheated.

Sorry I have no guesses; I don't recognize any of the quotes; I don't even understand the third quote. LOL Under what circumstances did a fighter make such a statement?

Anyway one of my favorite quotes.

"Lay down so I can recognize you." Willie Pep to some guy claiming to be one of his early opponents.
