I once saw someone riding one of those over the Akatawara Road, which is 30km of windy single lane roads over the top of a mountain range.

That's Dempsey on the right. The Manassa Mauler made it a tough day for Willard:

A beating so severe it was always suspected that Dempsey cheated, hiding bullets in his glove to tighten his punches. Willard when he was carried from the ring, having allegedly broken his jaw, lost some teeth and broken at least 3 ribs, kept saying "I have 100,000 dollars and a farm in Kansas."

And here's Dempsey getting knocked out of the ring by Louis Firpo, another fight Dempsey controversially won. Nice painting though.

Quite. That most photographers are delusional about the quality of their work.

Quote:
A severely broken jaw was just one of the wounds Willard suffered during the fight. When the fight was over and he was looked at by physicians, it was determined that he also had a broken cheek bone, caved-in by Dempsey, as well as broken ribs and permanent hearing loss. One witness described seeing half a dozen of Willard’s teeth spew from his mouth in a rainbow of bloody mist during the first round.

Camera's can't "see" supermarkets. TV producers often use supermarket backgrounds as props so they can substitute in other scenes, like soothing green backgrounds.
