the sweet science

boxinghas this odd moment of tenderness when a fighter is pummeled to the canvas and the ref counts over him but his eyes have no fight left and his legs won’t work properly and before finishing his 10-count the ref waves his arms and the fight ends and then after all that brutality the ref cradles the defeated boxer and hugs him as if to say “it’s okay you did your best you did your best”
