BENNY PARET – THE KID (from top to bottom)
1 - At the twelfth round, the announcer says: “It has been a modest round”. Immediately afterwards, his opponent hits Benny 29 times, with a series of 18
punches in 6 seconds.
2 - The referee does not stop the match, since Benny has a reputation for being a phony. The Kid goes into a coma and, after ten days, he dies. He is buried at the Saint Raymond’s
Cemetery in the Bronx.
3 - “For some, like a rose and for some, it just blows.” Vladimir Vysotsky. “Sentimental Boxer”.
