    I'm reading the life and hard times of Charley Burley

    um its good because

    I guess becuase, Charley Burley is the coolest. More or less.

    he was an uncrowned welterweight fighter from the 1940's who fought with a style of a fighter from the 1800's and was frozen out of championship fights because he was a) black and b) extremely good

    Charley was smooth

    impossible to even touch let alone hit.

    there is a rare silent film of one of his fights. this fight took me years to find. Charley fought like

    he wasn't even made of matter

    like he was weightless

    he makes Floyd Mayweather Jr look like a heavyweight


    evevery top fighter of his era avoided him like the plague. Sugar Ray Robinson baltantly ducked him. He was quoted as saying he wanted no parts of Charley Burley. White fighters also blatantly ducked him. everyone ducked him.

    because of that he had trouble making a living as a fighter. he was too good for his own good

    his is a strange tragedy

    yeah there is. here is the story

    the silent film reel was finally transcoded and released a few years ago on a private boxing tracker. the instructions were to not under any circumstqances share this fight to anyone who was not already a member of the tracker. boxing collectors are extremely selfish types. and I feel this is wrong.

    this fight did eventually leak (I won't say by who) though and the fight is now fairly common. some guy even put it on youtube.

    this is the only footage of Charley Burley that exists

    thomas sowell is my nigga.

    Only thing im reading at the moment is A wind up bird chronicle by haruki murakami. Probably wont finish because the print is annoyingly small and the publishers used shit paper which makes my thumbs feel funny.
