Talking Dictionary228. The World's Greatest Fighter


228. "One Punch" Pauly was the world's greatest boxer. "With either hand, he had the world's most powerful punch," said his trainer. "I saw him punch a Manhattan phone book. It was four inches thick. After Pauly's punch, it was one inch thick." Pauly weighed only 168 pounds. But 20 years ago, he was the champion of four weight divisions. He was the champion of the super middleweight, light heavyweight, cruiserweight, and heavyweight divisions. He threw exactly one punch per fight. He always waited until the right moment. Then he threw his right. Or his left. It didn't matter. One punch, one knockout! Each opponent was carried straight to the hospital. They all retired from boxing when they got out of the hospital. Pauly retired after just four professional fights. He was only 21. But after he had put the heavyweight champ into the hospital, nobody else wanted to fight Pauly. 4.8
