Happy Birthday!

Tom Sayers

born in Brighton:

May 25, 1826

One of the first international heavyweight champions.

        It was in the merry England, all in the bloom of spring,
        When Britain's noble champion stood stripped all in the ring
        To meet our noble Heenan, the gallant son of Troy
        To try his British muscle on our bold Benicia boy.

                "Heenan and Sayers," DigTrad filename[ HEENSAYR; More Pious
                Friends and Drunken Companions
, Frank Shay, 1927.

For some unfathomable reason, English & American versions seem to differently emphasize the role and prowess of the two fighters.
