Fact of the Day: Dumb Idea Boxing

In 1949 a skilled boxer named Gus Waldorf decided to be in a special boxing match. Except his opponent was not a man, but a full-grown bear. They muzzled the creature and covered his claws with boxing gloves. Despite the handicap, the bear eventually was the winner of the match.

  6. Good for the bear. I'd think they'd be better at wrestling than boxing.
