“Crazy Train” Carl DuFrain elevated his hands toward the heavens, and his scowl lightened into a wide smile. Other than some blood trickling from the mouth and an eye—swelling at an astronomical rate—becoming a mountain out of a molehill, DuFrain’s opponent, Bucky Farmer, was sound asleep.
For several, scary minutes, Farmer remained flat on his back—motionless. When he did, eventually, awaken, screams of pain frayed the nerves of spectators. Wide-eyed silence from every seat called back in response.
The cage side physician inventoried the damage inflicted by DuFrain’s battering ram of a right hand—a broken orbital, most certainly, but only an x-ray could reveal its extent. Showing more and more signs of life, the doctor continued his examination.
As the doctor pried open the eye that had sealed shut, considerable amounts of blood and chunks of membrane poured from the eye’s socket.
“His eye has ruptured; we need an ambulance, IMMEDIATELY!”
The doctor’s intuition led him to demand that the commission remove DuFrain’s gloves; thereby, revealing egregious handwraps that were comparable to a corked bat in baseball.
