~ Bertrand Russell
This was me, with Johnny as my second, back in 1981 or 82, at an event called "More Party Than Arty" at Charas. It's mud on my face because we had billed our fight as Mud Boxing but couldn't figure out a way to have a pit. I fought Rose Lesniak, & what I remember is her saying, "Don't hit me in the face, I'm an actress." So there was no way to actually fight. Finally we both fell down together, eliciting cries of "fix! fix!"
I loved that lamé outfit!
Marty Sutphin had a shirt made for me: Elinor "Bam Bam" Nauen & a few people have called me Bam Bam ever since.
I wish I had leapt for Johnny when we first met.
