This was news to me. A very unlikely person, it seems to me, actually lectured on William Shakespeare at Yale University. Would you believe that it was, Gene Tunney, a heavyweight boxing champion? (He was born in 1898-died:1978)

Yep! George Foreman is another boxer who had another career in mind. Do you have a George Foreman grill?

I think we tend to assume that people like boxers aren't going to be interested in the arts.
