cutie n. a boxer willing to take, and capable of withstanding, a lot of blows; an unrefined or unorthodox boxer who relies on tricks. Etymological Note: Perhaps from the idea of a “good chin,” meaning the boxer can take a beating to the face without being knocked out. Cute has a long-standing meaning of ‘clever,’ though less common now. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
