Counter-clockwise from bottom left:

“He was the greatest, all time, bar none!”


Silently to herself: “Are they really gonna do this again? Boxing…? So last century, boys”.


“Greatest? Only because you never heard of Marciano.”


“I think it’s a set up, Moe. I ain’t movin’ for it, I don’t care what she drops.”


“C’mon Sparky, what are you gonna rope-a-dope all night with this dame? She put you on the card with that glove drop – now get in there, I’m in your corner and I got your back.”


Silently to herself: “This glove is stained – I hope nobody notices as I drop it behind this table…”
