Quandary Resolution 2825
philtrum, psephology, palooka, Zeitgeist
It was easy to dismiss Maynard as a mere palooka when he came off the ropes flailing his fists in random directions, but a surprise jab to his opponent's philtrum, delivered with such aplomb that the man was upended, convinced me that he was the one I had been looking for: the Zeitgeist of boxing was changing, and his scattershot brilliance was enough that I vowed then and there to give up my study of psephology, that dry study of percentage points, and dedicate myself full-time to the flesh-and-blood world of the ring.
