International Boxing

International Boxing.

An Italian boxing team recently visited America to compete against an American amateur team. Premier Benito Mussolini's message to the Italian team was read to the members as they stripped for the fray. It read (translated): “You must be tenacious, sporty and sprightly. Remember that when you fight outside your borders, your strength, and, above all, your spirit is pledged at that moment to the sporting honour and prestige of the nation.”
