The Brute Pugilists -- "… I looked into a large enclosure, and saw the mode of punishment that Judge Minos, in his severest mood, metes out to the professional pugilist. The sluggers were holding glove contests with the most powerful of the demons. Some of them fought vigorously for a moment, but in the end they all succumbed. As the demons wore gloves covered with short iron spurs and the pugilists had only the regulation mitten, with eight ounces of padding, the contests were rather one-sided."
