THE TEMPERING

accident. A Jamaica nigger called Rube did it, at the Pilfold Stadium. He swung and got me in the groin. I don't think it was the nigger's fault. His foot slipped, or something. Even then I was only down for five seconds. They wanted to give me the fight, but I went on with it."
" But you got that blackie !" says Barker.
" In the last round," says Bullock.
Between Barker and Bullock a firm friendship has come into being. I see Barker's eyes gleam with triumph. "There now," he says. "Ole Bullock could smash 'em all. Couldn't yer, eh?"
Bullock says: "I can't think of anybody I couldn't beat." He is not bragging. He really cannot think of anybody he couldn't beat. He contemplates his knuckles; screws up his face, and spits a little blood from a cut on the inside of his lip, his permanently swollen upper lip. "I think I could get most of 'em. I've seen Joe Louis on the pictures. Given time, I could get him, even."
Sergeant Crowne says: "What d'you mean, given time? You mean, if you could wait sixty or seventy years till 'e's nice and old, and slosh 'im when 'e's too blind to see yer?"
" Oh no," says Bullock, very earnest, "I mean, given enough rounds, I'd wear him down and then I'd get him. Give me twenty rounds, and I'd get Louis."
We look at one another, not knowing what to say. The Boy from Widnes says: "Don't " and then pauses; but he sees no aggression in the dour, battered face of the indomitable Bullock, and so goes on : "Don't be such a silly Git, Bullock!"
