Morley Beats Ernest! (yawn...)

http://www.thesweetscience.com/boxing-article/1279/ernest-hemingway-literary-giant-boxing-pretender/
Morley Callaghan is in the news again, albeit this time on a boxing web site. Got the link from Maud Newton's web log. The article is another simple retelling of the Hemingway vs. Callaghan sparring match in the summer of 1929. There is a factual error (maybe more?) in that it purports Callaghan was a former colleague of Hemingway at the Kansas City Star. Morley actually only met Ernest while working at the Toronto Daily Star. Though not a new story, but it still amazes me that this story still surfaces every now and then.
