n.— «Prize-ring cuties are boxers who pay far less attention to inflicting damage on their opponents than to protecting themselves. Some of our most successful fisticuffians have been cuties, cuties who have outfumbled good opponent after good opponent, advancing relentlessly toward the top—and leaving every arena in which they appeared badly in need of fumigation.» —“Around the Ring” by Bill McCormick Washington Post Mar. 22, 1936.
