TOMMY FARH "Guess I'll quit fighting and go back to the mines. If I can't win n fight like that, why, it's no use fighting, I guess," said Tommy Farr, kingpin heavyweight of the British empire who lost a decision to Jimmy Braddock erstwhile world ruler of flstiana. "I'm confused," the Welshman from Tonypandy said. He first shouted "I was bloody well robbed' until his ghost writer, a fellow who challenged ncwipnpermcn to fisticuffs, shut him up. Farr once los.t his temper and that was wh'cn he shoved a news photographer towarc the exit. "Get out ol here or I'l punch you on the Jaw," Tommy shouted, almost flooring the cameraman.
