I just drove out there and took a few pics. The center target has a yardstick leaning up against the front of it......

I'm pretty sure he was trying to convince the Ref that he was okay and the fight should go on.


Aussie, shouldn't you be doing your homework?

I reckon he was asking the ref if he got the numberplate of the truck that just flattened him!

Nah I'm finished for tonight. And shouldn't you be at work??

I felt sorry for that boxer.

Yeah, I'm at work, just not working very hard.

He kept getting up so fast you could tell he wasn't ready to quit yet. He wanted another chance. And you laughed!? Poor kid. He probably trained long and hard for that match.

Actually, where I work it is very automated. I can shoot off a post or two with the analyzers and hissing and whirring behind me. I just have to inspect the results before I report them out to make sure the all look right. The analyzer could do the work but they require my brain and judgement for the final "inspection".
