  1. The Smoker

    This is longform article so may take a while and in parts regurgitates but is a quite interesting arcane bit of boxing history "In 1905, at the dawn of America’s empire under Teddy Roosevelt, a black sailor and a Jewish sailor boxed in a makeshift ring on the deck of a U.S. Navy ship. What was intended to be entertainment for hundreds of idle soldiers instead turned into a tragedy, marking a pivotal, if overlooked, moment in the history of race in the American military." https://www.buzzfeed.com/aramroston/the-lost-history-of-a-deadly-boxing-match-on-the-uss-yankee?utm_term=.bvV9LZZXJ#.wrqvgxxAX
