Spring iced Jim Murray a tradition a t Nair it to i los Angelesa Long with the Good 5-cent Cigar the .400 hitter and the Street Corner Snake Oil Pitchman one other american tradition is As Long gone As judge Crater this is the old time fight Trainer a gnarled Little Man with soaking Towel Over one shoulder a Cigar stub poking out of one Corner of his Mouth and a permanent Crook in his right Arm from carrying pails into the ring or Paloukas out of it. His conversation runs heavily to a snarl keep a left in Dere what Cha think a Doin Hangin a Pitcher he could up an opponent count a House and predict exactly what a referee would hold still for with one sweep of his canny old eyes which were he stitched with scar tissue because he won a few rounds himself As a kid and has fists like biscuit dough to prove it. When he was learning his Trade fighters were known As the Lei Perville Leopard or the Black Panther the Nebraska Wildcat and other ferocious Fauna. When he talks of Godfrey he did t mean Arthur he meant George. Johnson meant l in Arthur not Lyndon. He knew his Trade the Way a watch maker docs. He was a haunt around the gyms checking out the youngsters for the raw material Speed punch stamina heart. The super skills he knew he could pile on. He wanted to get the kids while they were Young before they found out Murray about girls and Gin. He lectured against dancing and marriage although he himself was probably putting a family through College he wore a tie Only at funerals kept his hat on indoors. He thought he was Tough bit his heart was usually made of Oatmeal especially where a broke fighter was concerned. A world of his own Joe went through life purple with rage How Many times i Tole a not to Trow the right til a seen him set up but profanity of the Stark variety of the football and baseball Locke rooms was always curiously absent around ring Corners. He spent his life inhaling equal parts Arnica and Cigar smoke when he went to London he did t go to Westminster Abbey he went to a gym and if you asked if he saw the King h thought you meant Joe Louis. The outside world had minimal interest for him. He was like the football coach who Only knew a War was on when great lakes began showing up in the sunday results. Whitey Bimstein Dan Florio Chickie Ferrara Freddy Brown were the Best of them left. They could close a Cut on a Haemorrhaging elephant with a Cotton swab and a band Aid. Nosebleeds were a Way of life to them and they always knew when a Guy climbed in the ring answering to a name like cast Iron Clancy he was no Good. Teddy Bentham belongs to this faceless fraternity of pugilistic Diamond cutters. Teddy had As they say Tony Pellone Lee Oma Rocky Castellani and some Long forgotten settlement House artists like Pete Mead. He taped the gloves on a few greats like Moore and Allie Stolt. He saw Leonard in his prime Mclarnin studied Tunney s form. He Learned things it would take a Guy on a desert Island a thousand years to figure out even from a Book. How to slip punches for example. A lost Art growls Bentham. A go up to the gym on main St. And the Only Guys who know How to slip punches Are carrying towels and a slip punch is better than a landed punch he says because it usually leaves you opponent hanging out there on a Nice big Hook. Jerry Quarry is the Best Young heavyweight fist fighter to come out of California since Corbett or at least Lou Nova. He could crumple you with a left Hook but usually looked like he was trying to throw it from a cake of soap. Against Eddie Machen he looked like a Guy trying to catch a train with one shoe off. They called in Teddy Bentham before the Patterson fight. Quarry looked so different people three rows Back could t re Cognize him. Some managers thought they ought to Check his Finger prints before they allowed the results to stand. Quarry May never win the heavyweight championship but he should never look like a Schoolboy again. He has 40 years of Arnica Cigar smoke and the shades of Benny Leonard Al Singer Tony can Oneri and pet Mead going for him. C 1967, the los Angeles times Saiof in Arm for racing Charlotte .
